Exploring AISA’s DEIJ Guide: Pathways to Transformation – Section 1: First Steps

POSTED: September 22, 2023Category: GeneralBY: AISA P9

It’s an absolute pleasure to announce that we’ve got something special coming up as we launch AISA’s DEIJ Guide: Pathways to Transformation – A Guide to Unlocking the Power and Potential of International Schools Grounded in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice, and Belonging. It is a comprehensive DEIJ Guide for educators and administrators who are committed to creating inclusive and equitable learning environments for all students. Our very own Chanel Worsteling has prepared a series of insightful podcasts featuring the incredible minds who contributed to the guide AISA DEIJ guide.

The AISA DEIJ Collaborative is a safe space for educators and school leaders in the AISA region to meet to discuss how our schools can become more attuned to DEIJ issues and to chart a plan of action leading to the educational reform required to make our school more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and places to work and learn. Below are all the sessions taking place: 

  • September 2023: First Steps
  • October 2023: Strategic Thinking
  • November 2023: Teaching and Learning
  • February 2024: Supporting Students and Staff
  • March 2024: Critical Issues in DEIJ/ DEIJ Case Studies
  • April 2024: Tools and Templates / DEIJ Partners
  • May 2024: How Can We Measure the Progress We’re Making?

Register now and join us in our first DEIJ Collaborative Meeting on the, September 27 at (14:00 GMT), which will be facilitated by Constance Darshea Collins and Joel Jr Llaban.

As we prepare for the first meeting, we invite you to begin to read one or all of the chapters under First Steps in the DEIJ Guide: The Journey Begins with Me, Grounding DEIJB in the African Context, & Getting Started: DEIJB Readiness. Equally important, we encourage you to engage in our online conversation leading up to the DEIJ Collaborative meeting. We value your diverse perspectives and invaluable insights.

To guide us, here are some of our initial guide questions:

  • What role might my identities play when I lead and engage in DEIJ work?
  • What intentional equity-focused desired outcomes are we developing, designing, and taking action that will center and change the experience of the historically marginalized identities of our communities?
  • How are we measuring these desired outcomes?
  • How are we situating DEIJB within the specific context of Africa?
