AESC IDEA Award
for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access
The AESC IDEA Award builds from the AESC Pledge by recognizing initiatives that demonstrate an exemplary commitment to inclusion, diversity, equity and access (or “IDEA”). These initiatives should be of sufficient significance and external impact to be recognized as excellent by the profession. The nominee should be able to clearly articulate the external impact of a strategy or initiative focused on encouraging diversity and inclusion. Demonstrated impact of the effort will be supported by examples and testimonials. Nominations can be submitted for individuals, organizations, a group within an organization, but must reference a specific initiative sponsored by an organization.
