    Perhaps a step further than “align” should be considered. What about “partner” with other departments?

    Partenrship implies equal footing, roles, and being stakeholders. It requires close collaboration. Partners can co-sponsor an event, collaborate on a project, co-endorse an initiative, share the glory, pass around accountability (not blame).

    In our industry, the target departments include IT, Bioinformatics, Structural Biology, Computational Chemistry, etc.”.
