I had the opportunity to join a complex ADEI initiative led by

Dr. Buck Jones; therefore, I experienced both her leadership and her facilitation up close. LaTanya helped our heterogeneous group feel like we had a common purpose, and her insight, deep well of expertise, and creation of actionable steps for our committee assured us that this initiative was not solely going to be ADEI "window-dressing." I have frequently told colleagues this experience under Dr. Buck Jones' leadership has been one of the best initiatives I've ever been a part of.
