IDEA is a forum for Guild members to learn and share so we can have safe and respectful conversations that foster equity and inclusion in everything we do.

Dedicated to listening and learning. 

We’re all on a journey of learning and self-reflection.

There are videos, articles and books that can expand our knowledge.
Our own experiences can help identify issues in our community.
