Timings: 09:00-11:00 & 12:00-14:00 (London time) on both days
For the past two years, we have been witnessing a global awakening to a call for a more intentional focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ). In the wake of the outcries for racial justice which reverberated around the world, many institutions indicated an intent to become places where those within their care can thrive with all aspects of their identity celebrated. However, international education continues to face significant challenges in creating lasting systemic change. Middle Leaders are often at the forefront of observing and experiencing the myriad inequities that exist, such as the lack of affirmation of certain student identities within the school culture and curriculum, staffing barriers relative to educator backgrounds, and more. How might we equip ourselves and our institutions to break through these challenges? Join this course to explore these themes and co-create actions that lead to breakthroughs which will enable yourself, your institutions, and the international education community to flourish.
- What systemic inequities do our fears protect and how can we interrupt them?
- How do we support those within our care to experience breakthroughs in order to flourish?
- How might we break through the systemic barriers to our own growth as middle leaders?
- What can we do as middle leaders to collectively inspire tangible change towards diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice within the international school ecosystem?
