Exploring a (New) Praxis for Internationalization: Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Decolonization (EDID)
Date: Nov. 8, 2021
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Legacies of racism and discrimination are rumbling across the globe in domestic and international affairs. The pandemic has brought into focus multiple levels of those inequities, some of which have been known, while others were previously unknown or overlooked. This has made us collectively question a lot of our assumptions regarding equity, diversity, inclusion and decolonization (EDID) work on our campuses within all domains including international education study and practice.
This webinar aims to shed light on the role international education has (and could) play in driving local and global [glocal] action to address injustices through developing citizens with a critical ‘glocal’ perspective, intercultural competencies, and a strong sense of social ‘glocal’ responsibility – skills that are not only sought after by employers as qualities for success in a global work environment, but also desperately needed for social cohesion, sustainable development, global peace, and the future of humanity.
