In the midst of recent protests and outcries against excessive police violence, we are collectively confronting a history of systemic racism that continues to impact Black, Indigenous, and People of Color on a global scale. Diversity Abroad invites you to join the inaugural Think Forward Summit to critically examine our responsibility as global educators to undo systemic racism within education abroad, international student and scholar services, global engagement at home and the cultures of our workplaces. This 2-day event will provide expert perspectives on inequitable racial dynamics that persist within Global Education, innovative and forward-thinking ideas to foster a more inclusive future, and opportunities for attendees to engage in meaningful dialogue.
