Rodneikka Scott, MSc, CAE, the Endocrine Society’s chief membership and diversity programs officer, has been chosen as one of the American Society of Association Executive’s (ASAE) Diversity Executive Leadership Program (DELP) scholars for the class of 2022 – 2024.
DELP is a two-year program that supports individuals from under-represented identity groups to advance into the ranks of leadership in the association management profession. DELP scholars participate in an accelerated leadership program of education, mentoring and volunteer service in the association community. Scott is one of 12 scholars chosen as part of the 2022 – 2024 class, a two-year program that includes a dynamic learning experience that will prepare the scholars for future leadership roles.
“It’s an honor to be named to ASAE’s 2022-24 class of DELP Scholars,” Scott says. “To be recognized alongside of such respected colleagues, with such an opportunity means so much to me. I’m truly excited about the professional development opportunities the program will afford me, the chance to participate in open dialogue about diversity and what it means for an organization to truly champion, and most importantly, to represent the Society and promote the importance of communicating effectively about diversity commitments. Most of all, I’m motivated to gain knowledge that I could use to give back to the greater association community.”
Scott has over 18 years of diverse experience in the membership, marketing, communications, volunteer relations, and education sectors. Before joining the Endocrine Society in 2019 as the director of member services, she was the Senior Director of Membership and Communications for the Association for Information Science and Technology, and a Senior Manager of Membership for the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the Association for Government Accountants. She recently earned the 2021 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace Certificate.
ASAE is a membership organization of more than 44,000 association executives and industry partners. Since it was established 100 years ago, its members have and continue to lead, manage, and work in or partner with organizations in more than a dozen association management disciplines, from executive management to finance to technology.
