The AISA DEIJ Guide, “Pathways to Transformation” seeks to unlock the power and potential of International Schools grounded in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice, and Belonging. The guide is a product of AISA’s Wellbeing for All programme, which seeks to enhance the effectiveness of member schools in supporting and embodying diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) and mental health for all educators and students, promoting a sense of belonging.

This is one of a series of Zoom calls taking place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. The sections of the DEIJ Collaborative series are:

  1. September: First Steps
  2. October: Strategic Thinking
  3. November: Teaching & Learning
  4. February: Supporting Students & Staff
  5. March: Critical Issues in DEIJ and Case Studies
  6. April: Tools & Resources and Policy Templates
  7. May: Measuring your DEIJ Progress

Participants will have an opportunity to meet to discuss specific sections of the new AISA DEIJ Guide. Before we meet on Zoom each month, ongoing online conversations will be taking place in the AISA DEIJ Collaborative Affinity Group. Two weeks before the Zoom meeting, participants will be invited to explore the new DEIJ guide section topic in the online forum. They can also listen to a podcast from the contributor(s) of the topic and engage in asynchronous conversations with other DEIJ Collaborative members.
