As diversity, equity and inclusion become more central to our work in education abroad, we need to rethink our roles. While we are used to building bridges across cultures, how do we build bridges with a diversity, equity, and inclusion framework within our campus communities?
“CEA’s Global Dialogue Series helped give context to this unprecedented time in the field of international education. Amidst the outpouring of virtual offerings after the start of the pandemic, CEA’s Global Dialogues stood out with unique, thoughtful topics, and a format that provided a connection to the international community at a time when many of us felt isolated from the rest of the world. Expert panelists invited us to view current events from a variety of different perspectives, and this type of multi-dimensional thinking is essential fuel for the innovative solutions we’re all looking for in this difficult time. I’m grateful to the Global Dialogue Series for reminding us of the importance of looking outside our personal worldview when confronting a challenge, and for emphasizing the mission we all share in international education of an ever-greater intercultural understanding.”
