Global Diversity & Inclusion Institutes

The landscape of education in the U.S. is changing as the student population becomes increasingly more diverse. As educational institutions are the main source of participants for international education and cultural exchange programs, those tasked with supporting participants in-country must continue to develop the knowledge, skills and competencies to provide adequate and inclusive support to participants of all backgrounds.

Join Us
Diversity Abroad will host virtual Global Diversity & Inclusion Institutes. These 2-day institutes are developed to assist onsite administrators, staff and faculty in supporting an increasingly diverse student population studying, interning or pursuing other exchange opportunities overseas. These workshops will have the following objectives:

  • Provide a broad overview of diversity & inclusion from the U.S perspective for onsite professionals
  • Explore the climate of diversity & inclusion within the region specific context
  • Provide practical guidance and resources for onsite professionals who are in the position to support diverse participants
  • Empower onsite professionals to review and enhance their policies and practices as it relates to inclusive support of participants

Session Topics
  • Contemporary Diversity & Inclusion Considerations: the US Perspective
  • Contemporary Diversity & Inclusion Considerations: the "Region-Specific" Perspective
  • Supporting Program Participants in Navigating Identity-Related Host Country Dynamics
