Supporting Our Community As We Navigate COVID-19
Without question the landscape of our sector has shifted. Diversity Abroad is at the forefront to ensure that as we realign and reimagine our work to meet this new normal, we are building a sector that is inclusive, equitable and supports the success of students and professionals from all backgrounds. Our team has been working hard to leverage our digital resources and knowledge of working in a virtual world to support our international community navigate through these unprecedented times. Here are some of the areas that we are focusing on to assist professionals and students:
Career Advancement & Belonging for Global Educators
To most effectively serve an increasingly diverse student body, it’s essential that global educators from diverse backgrounds are represented, equipped to advance their careers and experience a sense of belonging in their workplaces.
Ensuring students are equipped to succeed in education abroad programs requires staff, faculty, and administrators to promote inclusive practices across the continuum of the education abroad process. This includes exploring global programs, preparing to go abroad, living Abroad, coming home, and getting career-ready.
International Student Services & Cultural Exchange
Fostering a climate of inclusion and belonging for international students supports their success on globally diverse campuses and is a critical component to advancing comprehensive campus internationalization.
Global Learning at Home
Developing critical global competencies does not solely depend on student mobility. Digital learning tools & meaningful global educational experiences at home - both on campus and within the local community - can be leveraged to equip young people with the skills, knowledge and global acumen to thrive in an interconnected 21st century workforce
The future is uncertain but together we can create a more equitable international education sector. As our field faces monumental changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain steadfast in our commitment to ensuring equitable access to global education—at home and abroad and encourage our partners to keep diversity, equity, and inclusion at the forefront. Here are a few resources and opportunities to consider in this regard:
