The aim of this webinar was to introduce the AISA community to our Affinity Groups.

One of the initiatives of the AISA Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Justice (DEIJ) Programme is the establishment of a number of Affinity Groups. The purpose of these groups is to provide a safe space online for AISA members who share a commonality to connect, share ideas, challenges and interests.

During the session, AISA’s Affinity Groups and the DEIJ Design Team members were introduced. The DEIJ Design Team will facilitate each of the following groups:

  1. Women in Leadership
  2. LGBTQ
  3. BIPOC Educators
  4. DEIJ Allies

This webinar was a panel discussion with the AISA DEIJ Design Team. It was facilitated by the AISA Executive Director Dr Peter Bateman and had the following objectives:

  • To introduce AISA Affinity Groups, what they are, and how to join
  • To introduce each Affinity Group and the Group Facilitator’s
  • To invite participants to suggest topics of interest for each Affinity Group that can be explored at the Virtual Conference and in general
