The APS Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance (APS-IDEA) is a new initiative with a mission of empowering and supporting physics departments, laboratories, and other organizations to identify and enact strategies for improving equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). It will do so by establishing a community of transformation.
Team applications to join our network are currently closed. Due to overwhelming interest, we're unable to accept any more applications through the end of 2021.
Frequently Asked Questions: If you have questions about the initiative, see the FAQs page.

The network will provide a supportive environment to:
This is achieved through guiding principles of:
APS-IDEA members benefit from shared community ideas and support, online access to resources, and facilitation to accelerate team results.
With help, you can prepare a realistic 10-year sustainable plan for improving EDI, and set your department up to be recognized as a leader for its efforts and successes.
Together, let’s expand inclusion and belonging in physics.
