IDEAA Vision Statement
The promise of ACEDS is to engage in and continue difficult conversations, commit to equity and belonging for all in e-discovery and the legal community, and demonstrate our commitment through meaningful activities.
IDEAA Mission Statement
The IDEAA Committee of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) will ensure the continuous integration of diversity, equity, and inclusion within ACEDS chapters and the e-discovery community by encouraging and amplifying the voices of those in underserved, marginalized and minority communities, women and the LGBTQ+ community, lawyers and legal professionals from corporations, law firms, the government, and service providers.
The IDEAA Committee will raise awareness through networking and thought leadership events, work with external organizations that support our mission, and provide actionable resources for ACEDS members and the legal community to help drive initiatives consistent with our mission.
