Tracy is the Director of Center for Culturally Responsive Engagement (CCRE) based at Michigan Public Health Institute's (MPHI) Seattle satellite. In this role, she directs culturally responsive engagement to advance racial equity through organizational development, strategic planning, measurement, learning, and evaluation.
Leadership Positions: "One of my first leadership positions was Student Body President at HNA! Thinking back on that experience, I realize now, that’s when I became aware of my love for engaging others for community building. The leadership skills I developed at HNA prepared me for my academic and career experiences as a lead researcher, evaluator, educator, consultant, and executive in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors."
Best Part: "In my experience, the best parts of serving in leadership roles are: inspiring a shared vision, motivating others to action, creating opportunities for others to grow and lead, advocating for those who have been marginalized, and uplifting the voices of those who have been silenced. I am particularly committed to leadership for mentoring students and creating spaces for diversifying STEM education and career opportunities in my professional and volunteer roles."
