Cultivating the next generation of leaders advancing IDEAS: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access, and Social Justice
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
The intentional creation and maintenance of the conditions that enable everyone to be valued members of the community as they are.
A variety of visible and invisible traits and identities that cover the full spectrum of the human experience.
Being fair and impartial while acknowledging and addressing historical injustices and power imbalances.
Creating points of entry for everyone to fully participate in our communities and relationships.
A never-ending, collective investment in a better society for all.
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.
