Inclusive Leadership Network
Collaborating to Increase Impact
The Inclusive Leadership Network (ILN) is a mechanism to foster collaboration between organizational units to expand the inclusive leadership development opportunities available to academic and administrative leaders who are responsible for hiring, retention, promotion, and advancement to leadership. The ILN partners cooperatively host the Inclusive Leadership Academy, a series of workshops focused on building the capacity of leaders to create and sustain inclusive climates.

As an integral part of the university’s central leadership, the University Equity and Inclusion Office provides accountability and encouragement as we build a better Rutgers together. We are building capacity to lead strategic and campus-wide efforts to advance diversity and inclusion, emphasizing diversity education and outreach to promote personal and professional growth to foster a climate of inclusion within a diverse community, and establishing partnerships to support coordination with existing campus diversity efforts. We have a core objective to develop strategy and an understanding of our shared responsibility to nurture institutional diversity and build community.
