< return to list
Starts: 01-24-2023

Committee Description:

The Inclusion Diversity Equity Alliance's (IDEA) purpose is to (a) identify the inclusion and diversity strengths, issues, and opportunities within all aspects of SBI; (b) develop strategies and plans to examine ways in which we include and exclude (however unintentionally) SBI members; and (c) systematically examine aspects of SBI to enhance its effectiveness and ability to meet the needs of a growing diverse membership.

*** To ensure IDEA is effective and intentional, interested volunteers should consist of a broad swath of SBI members. Those representative of a racial/ethnic/minority group (i.e. people of color), lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender, or a person with a disability are highly encouraged to apply. Interested members should complete the volunteer application requirements outlined below.
