AISA is committed to contributing, in authentic and meaningful ways, to the pressing need to address the lack of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice within the international school sector globally. Within the Africa region, the goal of AISA’s DEIJ programme is to enhance the effectiveness of AISA schools in promoting a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and just community for all educators, school leaders, co-professionals and students in a manner that is contextually relevant and that results in sustainable change.
AISA strives to incorporate diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice into all aspects of our Wellbeing for all programming to help us achieve our organisational mission, and deepen our impact.
To guide us in this effort, AISA is establishing a DEIJ Design Team, which will include a diverse representation of individuals from AISA member schools who can bring to the team their unique experience, skills, and perspectives pertinent to BIPOC Educators, LGBTQ+ Educators, Women Educators, among others. To find out more about the type of work the Design Team will be doing, please refer to the terms of reference here.
