Today, educational institutions are seeking leaders with strong intercultural skills who can work effectively with their executive leadership on a strategic approach to internationalization, diversity and inclusion.

Diversity Abroad’s Global Institute for Inclusive Leadership in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil, is an intensive, 8-day workshop for emerging leaders in international education, student affairs, and multicultural programs. Interactive, seminar-style sessions are paired with cultural immersion activities for personal and professional development.

Brazil is a Top 15 destination for study abroad and is often compared to the US because of its similar history of slavery, emancipation, European immigration, and multiculturalism. However, Brazil’s distinctive national ideology of “racial democracy” often challenges Americans who come with their own culturally constructed notions of race, diversity and inclusion. Our Institute location, Salvador da Bahia, is the capital of Afro-Brazilian culture and history, an UNESCO world-heritage site, and a modern multicultural city grappling with inequality and inclusion against a backdrop of beaches and natural beauty.
