Selection of Pillar Leads and Working Groups

We have selected leaders for each of the six pillars, and these leaders will drive stakeholder engagement for each area and help deliver the final vision and objectives. Each pillar is also supported by a working group, folks who are invested in each area and will consult and help drive stakeholder engagement forward. If you want to get involved and have your voice heard, reach out to these pillar leads.
