Leadership Institute Program Details

Individual Projects

Leadership Institute participants will have the opportunity to put leadership theory into practice through an individual project selected and aligned across a strategic impact matrix culminating in a brief presentation at the final on-site meeting. The matrix encourages each participant to select an individual project topic that best reflects a shared commitment to positively impact future practice. From the final selected topic, small workgroups will be formed and utilized for LI participant engagement with expert mentors and staff. Ultimately, projects will vary in focus and address a spectrum of current and anticipated challenges facing the nutrition and dietetics field, from advocacy and cross-disciplinary communication, to nutrition research, professional development, and evidence-based research and practice.


Program

Subject to change. Attendance required at all live programs and events. Completion of all online programs is required.

All participants will utilize the virtual environment cultivated through Bizzabo and eatrightCPE from inception until arriving onsite in October 2022 in Orlando, Fla. Participation in all virtual programs and events is required. The on-site program will conclude the 2022 LI program with a two-day interactive meeting where each LI participant showcases their individual project to invited guests using a live, four-minute pitch format. Details and training on the presentation process will be embedded throughout the LI program to assure all participants are prepared to meet the requirements of the program outcomes and overall expectations.
