Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement
- We believe that equity, diversity, and inclusion should be embedded within the structure of the organization and integral to the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.
- We believe that the inclusion and celebration of each individual’s intersecting identities, experiences, and abilities enriches our organization and our work with members, professionals, and students.
- We believe that education abroad can be a tool for cultivating anti-racist and decolonial thought in students and stakeholders.
- We believe in creating safe spaces and brave spaces for belonging, communication, sharing and learning.
- We believe we have the responsibility to actively inform and engage the field of education abroad in a way that fosters inclusion, promotes equity, and combats structural racism systemically and sustainably.
How We Manifest This:
By engaging in dialogue, collaboration, sharing best practices, research and innovation, and professional development, The Forum strives to address and provide critical resources and a forum for discussion for the field of education abroad, with particular consideration of groups who have been historically excluded or marginalized impacting access to education abroad.
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad, 6th ed.
The sixth edition of the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad places equity, diversity, and inclusion as cornerstones for best practice in education abroad program design and management and student recruitment and support. This poster provides an overview of how the Standards apply to our work and how they can help identify strengths and areas for improvement on the quest for more equitable, inclusive, and diverse education abroad programs.
