Diversity & Inclusion Resources for Managers
Managers hold a vital role to furthering our collective sense of community, belonging, and sustaining an inclusive and equitable workplace. IDEAL – Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access in a Learning Environment – is a university-wide initiative to provide resources and community events to support Stanford's long range vision and commitment to an inclusive, equitable community.
