The International School Anti-Discrimination Task Force, jointly founded by ECIS, Ecolint, The International Baccalaureate, and AIELOC. Our shared vision is for international schools to be truly diverse, inclusive, safe, equitable and welcoming for all students, staff and families by promoting practices that eliminate racism, implicit bias and discrimination of all kinds.
From Kam Chohan, Executive Director, ECIS:
Thank you to all attendees for a powerful, purposeful, energy-raising and sustained action-promising inaugural task force event. Ecolint, we are grateful for the space and resources provided. Thank you to all facilitators and presenters for fully and whole heartedly contributing. Many more want to be involved who could not attend, and we want to be able to hold space for all of our communities.
There were so many moments from the weekend (conversations, group work, first time in person meetings) that brought joy. We are already thinking and drafting ideas for the next steps to be shared.
There was a very special feeling in the air, with a promise that this first and truly historic event will change systems, processes, culture and lives.
Thank you once again for doing something very special and for bringing us so much light.
