The IDEA (Inclusion Diversity Equity Accessibility) Center for Public Gardens is thrilled to announce the Inaugural Cohort Program participants. This group represents board members, executive garden leadership, and staff at public gardens, arboreta, and parks from across North America.
Virtual convenings, collaboration and training begin May 12 for a year of learning, growth (personal and institutional) and strengthening our unique communities through the application of IDEA Principles.
Please take a moment to recognize your colleagues and congratulate them on their leadership and commitment to applying IDEA Principles in the continued development of public horticulture!
Applications for the next Cohort Program are anticipated to open in early 2023.
