Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA)

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA)

Chautauqua Institution has named inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA) as a cross-cutting imperative in its strategic plan, 150 Forward. As an imperative that impacts all initiatives underway and contemplated by the Institution, our commitment to IDEA is elevated in all that we do. In this program category of CHQ Assembly, we have assembled lectures from the past that address issues critical to this commitment. We will continue to add programs to this collection that bring perspective and insight on IDEA issues to inspire positive action toward a more inclusive and just society.
