Global Inclusion is the only conference solely dedicated to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of global education and cultural exchange.
Global education can be a high impact practice that contributes to academic success, interpersonal growth and career readiness. As such, all students and young people deserve equitable access to the benefits that global education and cultural exchange can afford.
With an increasingly diverse student population enrolled in education systems, it is imperative that educators and administrators continue to strengthen their skills, knowledge and competencies in diversity, equity, and inclusion to ensure that global education is not only accessible, but designed to support all students.
Moreover, the field of global education and cultural exchange, like any sector, must be intentional in building a diverse pipeline of professionals and fostering a climate of inclusion and belonging in offices, organizations, and higher education institutions. We must strive to ensure our profession, and those in it, reflect the rich diversity of the communities in which we live and the students whom we support.
Each year the Diversity Abroad community gathers for Global Inclusion to tackle the challenges and opportunities diversity, equity, and inclusion presents to the field of global education and cultural exchange.
