About the Summit

Do you care about inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, and social justice (IDEAS)? So do we! As students, young professionals, and rising leaders, we need inclusive spaces to express ourselves, exchange ideas, and collaborate on bringing these values to life.

The Inclusion NextWork was formed to realize this vision. Our team is thrilled to announce our first ever, in-person summit: IDEAS for the Future. Let’s come together to:

  1. Convene rising leaders passionate about IDEAS to connect and build networks and community

  2. Exchange IDEAS experiences and expertise in support of our individual and collective learning

  3. Co-create a vision and agenda for the future of IDEAS to share with our communities and organizations

The IDEAS for the Future Summit will be held in Washington DC on Friday, August 23rd and Saturday, August 24th. We invite you to join us and other IDEAS advocates and leaders to learn from each other and co-create the future IDEAS platform that emerging leaders can use to drive real change in their communities. This conference is highly interactive and participatory and therefore limited to 50 participants, so register today!
