Session Description: Join AFP Southern Arizona chapter members Elise Christmon, Valerie Sipp, Edna Meza-Aguirre, CFRE, JD and Anton Russell to learn about how IDEA work is transforming our chapter. This panel session will examine AFP Southern Arizona chapter as a case study in implementing IDEA followed by interactive discussion and participant brainstorm about IDEA in their own organizations. Over the past five years, though a commitment to focusing fundamentally on IDEA, our chapter has begun to transform into one where an IDEA lens drives every facet of our chapter’s work. Our successes include the creation of a BIPOC leadership pipeline, creation of a community-based BIPOC affinity group, establishing an equitable compensation model for our presentation speakers, flattening the traditional mentorship hierarchy model, adopting community-centric fundraising principles, and more. A longtime annual IDEA Champion designation recipient, our chapter continues to deepen our commitment to IDEA as our driving force and is eager to share our approach with other chapters.
