New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming aims to expand the diversity of perspectives that inform Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) programming and introduce new researchers and scholars to the Foundation who would help teams with their research and evaluation needs. The program invites Midcareer Consultants—scholars from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities who have between 10–15 years of research and/or evaluation experience—to address program priorities for RWJF’s teams and portfolios. New Connections is a career development program for early- and midcareer researchers. We aim to enhance the research and evaluation capacity of researchers and consultants from underrepresented groups.
