Tackling Racism Workshop Series: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in our Schools and Universities

We are pleased to announce three new virtual CIS foundation workshops to support our members as we purposefully and intentionally tackle racism in schools and universities across our global CIS community.

Embracing diversity—the understanding of and respect for the similarities and differences of a range of individuals and peoples—is a fundamental value that all CIS members have committed to actively develop through education. 

We are all accountable, and progress is dependent on strong foundational concepts that are grounded in being self-reflective, deliberate, and evaluative. Taking time to develop and strengthen our foundations—individually and institutionally—is essential, no matter how progressive or rudimentary we are in our thinking and actions. 

Schools and universities will be in a better position to address the challenges faced by non-dominant racial and cultural groups, and the resulting bias and discrimination, by developing the behaviours and understanding at the core of intercultural competence.

We can help our members do the groundwork during our new one-day, 2.5 hour virtual and interactive workshops. 

Our guest speakers bring extensive expertise in diversity, equity, and inclusion to help our community of international schools and universities to collaborate and build understanding of intercultural competence and its role in tackling racism and creating equity in their institutions.

* We are running each workshop twice so that you can choose the time/date to suit your time zone best.
