Mentoring: Matthew Miller, RF Central Office
Why I want to be a Mentor:
"As I reflect back on my ascension into a leadership position, I credit the mentoring relationships as one of the most beneficial components to my success at the RF. I have been with the RF for six years and I am still fortunate to have two great mentors in a leadership capacity that continue to offer me guidance on professional development opportunities, provide open and honest feedback, insight into true corporate culture, and support through real world problem solving. I truly value the conversations I have with my mentors which have only strengthened my ability to facilitate teamwork and improve working relationships. I would like to use what I have learned over the years to be a resource and a valued adviser to someone so they feel informed and empowered to achieve their own personal goals and aspirations."
"I am currently the Interim Vice President for Internal Audit at the RF and lead a team of six audit professionals, each with a unique background and skill set. In my career at the RF, I have been involved in audit engagements at almost all 31 operating locations, across varying disciplines including pre-award and post-award, technology transfer and research compliance so I believe I can be an invaluable resource for a protégé in this organization. And when I am not out protecting the RF from a compliance disaster, I am off traveling the world already having visited 10 countries in Central America, Europe and Asia."
"Short-term goals are underrated, success is not achieved alone, personal accountability is more admirable than personal accolades, and formality is the death of ingenuity."
Commitment to Diversity:
"In my personal and professional life, I have always cultivated close relationships based on a simple principle of mutual respect and recognition of individuals’ unique contributions and experiences. I make it a point to encourage an atmosphere that fosters open commination, challenges the status quo, and embraces new perspectives and experiences that will drive progressive change for the benefit of the team. I believe this commitment will allow me to effectively lead others and model diversity throughout the RF."
