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

A CIS virtual workshop series

We are all accountable for purposefully and intentionally tackling racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion in schools and universities across our global CIS community.

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.

Intercultural competence and the ability to understand, interact with, and navigate diversity in all its forms is essential to creating equity in schools and universities.

We can help you do the groundwork during these one-day, 2.5 hour virtual and interactive workshops. They are designed for CIS member schools and universities that are beginning the journey of creating anti-racist, diverse, equitable, and inclusive institutions. We will address intercultural competence and help you achieve equity.

You and your institution 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.

Your learning path begins with self-awareness, then toward knowing others, and finally by applying these learnings to create equity in your own schools and universities.

Participants will be engaged in interactive learning activities to develop their own understanding alongside your peers from international schools and universities.

Story plays an integral part in these workshops. All are encouraged to share their experiences and expertise. 

Rich conversations around implicit biases with other educators, excellent presenters who facilitated & shared important stories, strategies & suggestions for courageous conversations. Looking forward to continued dialogue with colleagues.
