The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Accessibility (IDEA) Committee is charged with providing education and advocacy about inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility issues that serve the interests of the association and its membership. This task force will reach out to members, coordinate efforts with existing MiALA entities such as Committees and Interest Groups, and make recommendations to the Board of Directors.

The MiALA IDEA Committee welcomes submissions to the IDEA Resources for Education and Training list. Please fill out the form below, providing all information requested.
