Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility Committee


The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) committee is actively advocating for a flute community whose members have diverse cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences. We aim to honor freedom of expression, ideals of citizenry, and civility of discourse as fundamental to personal, professional, and organizational growth.


Members of 2016 Cultural Outreach Committee, Eileen Grycky, Jan Angus, and Jennifer Grim, along with NFA Student members Rodrigo Corral and Dafne Guevara, host scholarship students from Mexico during the NFA Convention in San Diego.

Our committee strives to engage and celebrate flutists of all walks of life, including but not limited to people whose voices have been historically underrepresented or marginalized, such as:

  • BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color)
  • LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and Others)
  • Latinx (gender-neutral word for people of Latin American descent)
  • AALANA (African American, Latino, Asian, Native American)



IDEA scholarship programs are made possible through the NFA's General Endowment Fund. If you are interested in supporting our programs, please consider making a donation—your support could make all the difference for a promising young flutist!
