The goal of the IAED Mentorship Program is to provide mentors to ACTE members interested in IAED (Inclusion, Access, Equity, and Diversity), leadership roles in ACTE and advising existing leaders in ACTE on IAED issues.

The IAED Mentorship Program is open to any ACTE member who is interested in IAED.
