Kylie Tucker, PhD
During my 4-years as ISEK Secretary (2018-2022) I have intentionally highlighted the diversity amongst our membership and conference attendees and worked with our council and membership to think broadly for award nominations and committee selection. We introduced subcommittees that strengthened our resolve to improve Communications, Member Services, and Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging. We now have an Early Career Researcher (ECR) subcommittee and two ECRs who attend Council meetings. We have held one on-line congress and our current Chairs are making the most of ever-changing conditions to bring another congress to you in 2022. These are the things I am most proud of, having been on ISEK Council. I have a firm resolve to continue to engage with our membership, to encourage the sharing of knowledge/skills, and to move the diversity agenda forward. This includes the need to ensure that our members are rewarded for innovation and knowledge translation, and for supporting the development of those who start with less opportunity but with the right support can make a significant impact in our field. The ISEK community is built-on-giants, our current membership is strong, and I hope to help ISEK continue to adapt, move with the times, and maintain relevance.
