The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access in a Learning Environment (IDEAL) initiative provides resources and community events to support Stanford's long range vision and commitment to an inclusive, equitable community.
All members of the Stanford community are invited to participate in a survey to share your experience. The survey is open through May 28. Read the May 12, 2021 article about the survey: "Stanford Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Survey now open."
The Staff Advisory Committee guides the strategic direction of IDEAL for staff, and proposes programs and initiatives to further diversity and inclusion at Stanford. Committee members represent schools and units across campus and partner with the IDEAL project team to prioritize efforts and advance issues and recommendations to Executive Leadership. To align strategic efforts across students, faculty and staff, the Staff Advisory Committee will also partner with the Student and Faculty Advisory Committees currently being formed.

In 2020, Stanford staff from across campus participated in Brave Spaces, a virtual forum to broaden our understanding, help us become better allies, and discuss ways we can create a more inclusive and equitable culture.
