Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility

AFCEA International’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) initiative is to ensure all AFCEA programs and initiatives reflect the fabric of our country and establish a sense of belonging for everyone; understanding that each member is unique while recognizing and embracing individual differences; providing a culture in which all members can connect, contribute and be themselves; and assisting leaders and members across its chapters to realize these goals.

AFCEA’s main objective is to ensure programs and initiatives reflect the fabric of our country and establish a sense of belonging for everyone. Addressing diversity means understanding that each member is unique while recognizing and embracing individual differences regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age and physical abilities.

A top priority of AFCEA’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility Committee (IDEA) is to ensure leaders and members across the chapters understand we all play key roles in helping to realize these goals. IDEA aims to provide a culture in which all members can comfortably connect, contribute and be themselves. We all share the responsibility for developing communities in which every member can contribute.

The IDEA Committee is here to serve as a resource to support chapters and organizations in building inclusive communities. The committee is comprised of members who represent all levels of leadership. An executive advisory council works in concert with the committee to address critical issues that affect our community. The committee includes representation from numerous interest groups and leaders across the country.
