Whats the Big I.D.E.A.?
The IDEA is designed for events and organizations that recognize the value of inclusivity, and are ready to take action.
The Inclusivity, Diversity & Equality Advantage is an implementation of the idea that our communities have greater potential if we include everyone in a safe and respectful way, while also acknowledging that many events and organizations are often formatted to best serve only the majority, leaving many minority groups as an afterthought.
The IDEA teaches leaders, committee members, hosts and organizers how to think, and act, more inclusively, so everyone in the community can participate.
The implementation of The IDEA is highly contextual. Once an organization agrees to adopt The IDEA, they decide through The IDEA Process, how to best to honor and uphold the values of The IDEA.
