Congratulations to Ernest Brothers, NIMBioS Associate Director for Diversity Enhancement, for being selected to join the 2014 class of Leadership Knoxville.
Leadership Knoxville, a non-profit training progam begun in 1985, brings together about 50 leaders from around the Knoxville region to a 10-month, intensive study of the community, its history, opportunities and challenges. Through a nomination process, participants are selected based on the nominee’s interest, demonstrated leadership to greater Knoxville and leadership capabilities. Participants commit to Leadership Knoxville’s goal of serving as “catalysts for positive change” in the greater Knoxville area.
Dr. Brothers is an assistant dean in UTK’s Graduate School, overseeing the Office of Graduate Training and Mentorship. In his role at NIMBioS, Dr. Brothers helps further NIMBioS’ goals to increase underrepresented minorities in the sciences.
