Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in International Schools | Educators Without Borders

As we continue our examination into best practices in international schools, we take a hard look at diversity, equity, and inclusion. These initiatives and concepts can often seem nebulous and be misunderstood by many – even questioned on their validity and relevance. Diversity, equity, and inclusion also take a very contextualized and different meeting within the unique world of international education.

This episode of Educators Without Borders is hosted by Dr. Wallace Ting (Co-Founder, SchoolRubric) with special panelists Liz Cho (Principal of Teaching and Learning, Korea International School), Dr. Darnell Fine (Middle School Deputy Principal, Singapore American School), and Dr. Erin Robinson (Head of Secondary, Atlanta International School).
