AISA developed the DEIJ Guide to offer practical guidance to schools in their endeavour to become exemplars of DEIJ and foster a sense of belonging. Its emphasis lies in providing actionable strategies (‘how’) rather than delving into the rationale (‘why’).

The AISA DEIJ Symposium brings together a number of contributors to the Guide who will speak to their contributions and how they have confronted injustice and spearheaded systemic transformations within their own schools and communities. They will present concrete examples that are intended to inspire ideas for implementing positive change within your own school and community.
