Intentional Learning is the Cornerstone

The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) Living Library allows you to access mentorship at your own pace and is designed to maximize the potential for engagement across intersections of identity. Regardless of where you may be on your career path and personal journey, we hope you find someone to inspire you on your path forward.

This can be a powerful resource for those looking to explore other careers paths or opportunities and to get first hand advice and story sharing.

Making yourself available as a book will also allow you to gain valuable experience explaining your professional advancement, to support the talent development of others, and to build the stories that can improve success when seeking job opportunities.
