How We Work: A Message from Michael J. Fox
Since opening our doors, our Foundation has brought a distinctive sense of urgency and efficiency to the Parkinson's research landscape. We're always challenging how we can advance research better and faster.
Our people are determined, collaborative and whip smart. I hope this also describes you. Thanks for your interest in working at MJFF and helping us end Parkinson's disease.
What We Bring to Our Work
Impact–orientation — We know more can be done to make an impact on improving care and speeding better treatments and that it is our job to deliver results.
Risk-tolerance — We work to understand and articulate our risk appetite and proactively use that knowledge to drive progress around priority initiatives.
Experimental/iterative approach — No straightforward path exists to accomplish our mission. We embrace the problems and chart the course to build consensus around key priorities. We architect roadmaps to help guide a wide range of stakeholders.
Nimbleness — We are responsive to changes in our ecosystem — taking on new opportunities, big and small, and changing our approach, where required, to maximize our effectiveness.
Self-reflection — We integrate what we learn and reflect updated knowledge in our plans and actions.
Collaboration — We lessen boundaries by seeking to include all stakeholders, internally and externally, and by turning out knowledge to benefit the entire PD community. We share the stories and voices of Michael J. Fox and others who have taken his lead in helping light the path to something better for patients/families.
