Cultivating the next generation of leaders advancing IDEAS: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access, and Social Justice

WE ARE

IDEAS

A community and workforce development hub incubating and accelerating leaders' capacity to advance Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access, and Social justice (IDEAS) in their communities and organizations.

Millennials and Generation-Z are the most diverse generations ever.

They are passionate about IDEAS, but barriers like isolation, burnout, and limited professional onramps undermine their potential to build organizations and communities that work for everyone.


We're here to change that.

WHAT WE DO

OUR IDEAS FRAMEWORK

INCLUSION

The intentional creation and maintenance of the conditions that enable everyone to be valued members of the community as they are.

DIVERSITY

A variety of visible and invisible traits and identities that cover the full spectrum of the human experience.

EQUITY

Being fair and impartial while acknowledging and addressing historical injustices and power imbalances.

ACCESS

Creating points of entry for everyone to fully participate in our communities and relationships.

SOCIAL JUSTICE

A never-ending, collective investment in a better society for all.

CONSULTING

Our intergenerational consulting partnerships will strengthen your mission and deepen your impact by unlocking IDEAS in your organization.

UPCOMING EVENTS

I truly can’t speak highly enough about Lead for America’s time with IDEAS Generation. Thanks to the care and specificity IG imbued throughout the training, folks walked away with a tangible understanding of how these realities manifest in their own work and tools for taking action to uphold IDEAS principles.
