The Global Impact Exchange quarterly publication serves to advance domestic and international conversations around diversity, inclusion, and equity in global education with respect to the thematic focus identified each quarter.
Diversity Abroad welcomes submissions for the Fall 2019 edition of The Global Impact Exchange: A Quarterly Publication of Diversity Abroad. Article submissions can take various forms, including: scholarly articles, opinion pieces, book reviews, student stories, personal narratives, research findings, etc. We encourage contributors who have experience working with diverse and underrepresented groups in global education including racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQI+, persons with disabilities, religious diversity, high financial need, community college students, and first generation college students. Selected articles will be shared widely through Diversity Abroad communication platforms.
Attracting, Recruiting, and Retaining Diverse Talent in International Education
How do we find ways to help diverse talent feel welcome and retain them in our offices? How can we better articulate international education as an attractive and meaningful career path for young graduates from diverse backgrounds? Besides entry-level positions, what other entry points to the profession can be leveraged for those with transferable skills?
