Marcum Learning Community- nclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA): Guidelines for Developing Responsive Programming

April 19, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Effective nonprofits have recognized the need for an IDEA focused strategy and plan. Implementing an IDEA plan for your programs starts with understanding the unique needs of your target population and incorporating that knowledge into the goals, activities, and deliverables outlined in the implementation plan. Investing in beneficiary-led program development means you start with the need, then work together to develop the best way to address that need. We are now beginning to see funders ask about your IDEA implementation plans. This workshop will move you from “it’s a good idea” to “how do we do it.”



  • Learn how listening to lead drives exploratory conversation and collaboration
  • Learn to utilize the viewpoints of the clients you serve when assessing need and planning programs
  • Explore methods for adopting practices, activities, and systems that promote optimal engagement and outcomes for those you serve
  • Learn to assess and address biases in an implementation plan
