Harvard IDEAs: Inclusion, Diversity, and Excellence in Actions

Harvard IDEAs is an eight session training program designed to build leadership capability and organizational capacity to advance inclusive excellence and belonging at Harvard. The program exploring issues of  privilege, micro-aggressions, self-understanding/biases, engaging in difficult conversations, allyship, and creating inclusive excellence among staff and senior leaders. The goal of the program is to increase  commitment  from all staff employees to  do their part and actively contribute to an inclusive environment -- management must possess diversity and inclusion competencies to lead and manage an engaged workforce and others must treat colleagues with respect by listening to different viewpoints and ideas; and  embracing a culture of inclusion.

Harvard IDEAs is collaboration between SEAS, the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard Kennedy School, and Harvard Library.
