IPIC'S STRATEGIC PLAN
IPIC's Strategic Plan will guide us in achieving our mission and fulfilling our vision. Our goals are our expected results, and for each goal we have identified key objectives to guide our work as well as tactics that we will employ to achieve our goals. The strategy is presented in an aligned, linear fashion; however, it is important to consider that each goal, objective and tactic reinforce and enhance other elements of the strategy, and should be seen as operating in a dynamic system.

IPIC is pleased to announce that for the first time since the Institute’s inception in 1926, it has elected Stephanie Chong as its first BIPOC President to serve for the 2020-2021 term. The timing of Stephanie’s appointment could not come at a more relevant period in recent history. With an increasing focus on diversity and inclusion on a global scale, it is high time that this initiative be reflected across IPIC’s own Board of Directors.CONTINUE READING
