The ACS National HPV Vaccination Roundtable Emerging Leaders Program is designed for early-career professionals. This one-year program enhances skills, tools, and habits to amplify leadership qualities among fellows. Facilitated through collaborations with leaders in the HPV community, connections to national organizations, and mentorship from the ACS HPVRT leadership and staff, fellows can build upon their career while shaping the future of HPV vaccination best practices and outreach.
Through the Emerging Leaders Program, the HPVRT seeks to identify members from diverse backgrounds (i.e., racial/ ethnic diversity, geographical location, identity/orientation, scope of work, work setting, etc.) to create a pool of strong candidates for the ACS HPVRT leadership succession as well as benefit immunization and cancer prevention activities at their host organization.
Priority will be given to individuals affiliated with a current member organization; however, current membership is not a requirement.
We ask that all Emerging Leader fellows commit to:
– Attend the in-person HPV Roundtable National Meeting during Fall 2023
– Complete Emerging Leaders Program in its entirety – attending consistently (≥75%) meetings as scheduled
– Dedicate 2-4 hours of dedicated time outside of the committee meeting to the HPVRT Emerging Leaders project each month
– Secure buy-in and protected time from the leadership of their organization
– No cost to all applicants and participants
– Interactive professional development workshops
– Mentorship from current HPV Roundtable leaders and subject matter experts
– Paid travel to the HPV Roundtable National Meeting
– Engage in health equity work with a focus in HPV
– Bi-monthly Emerging Leaders meetings to collaborate with others in the HPV community
– Certificates of completion after the program
