Intercultural Series | Webinar 9: Aligning policy with practice: International, Intercultural and DEI
Over the last year, there has been a growing recognition of the need to be more collaborative in the work that we do on and off campus and in the virtual world especially as it relates to diversity, equity and inclusion work. In this session, our speakers will share insights on integrating policy with practice, ways that they are working to bridge gaps between DEI and international and provide frameworks and suggestions for moving forward to create a more inclusive environment for all.
