Inclusion/Diversity/Equity/Anti-Racism/Social Justice (IDEAS) Committee

The IDEAS Committee is a committee established by the ANA Board of Directors to implement actionable steps that relate to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). The Committee is charged with developing, instituting, and assessing programs and policies that develop an organizational culture that values and acknowledges the ANA’s diverse membership; and foster an inclusive and equitable organizational culture that serves as an example to its members and the academic neurology and neuroscience community at large.
