Leaders Forum & Alumnae

Graduation awards

Each year, the ELATES program concludes with an in-person Leaders Forum to celebrate the accomplishments of the graduating cohort. The Leaders Forum is a unique opportunity for Fellows and their institutional leaders to discuss the wide range of organizational change initiatives addressed during the Fellowship year. The core of the Leaders Forum is a showcase of the Fellows’ Institutional Action Projects though an oral presentation and poster symposium, and serves as the capstone of the ELATES Fellowship year.

The symposium:

  • highlights the Fellows’ accomplishments and leadership activities.
  • provides a space for content-rich interaction between fellows and guests.
  • supports collaboration on organizational change efforts across institutions.
  • demonstrates the overarching impact of ELATE Institutional Action Projects on organization improvement.

ELATES Alumnae

The community of ELATES alumnae extends to STEM faculty from schools and universities all across the country. ELATES alumnae are also part of a larger community of ELATES' sister program, ELAM, which now numbers into the thousands. Through joint efforts, ELATES and ELAM are committed to fostering this community of leaders in a manner that contributes to the success of our program alumnae long beyond their fellowship year.
