Webinar October 20th 2020

Information

In July 2020 GAPS organized a webinar with student leaders (part I).                                            Now we organize part II: Designing the Post-COVID Tertiary Education Experience What If Equity, Access, Diversity & Inclusion for Students, Educators and Staff Were the New Normal

GAPS Webinar with a global panel of university leaders 

Dates: October 20th 2020 at 11 am EST & 5 pm CET

GAPS is launching a series of webinars on Equity, Access, Diversity and Inclusion for students, educators and staff in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting dialogues around the world on diversity and inclusion in tertiary education.

Many tertiary institutions and systems were working to develop and implement policies and programs to advance equity, access, diversity and inclusion on their campuses. Yet, the Covid experiences are bringing to light that the differences in equity, access, diversity and inclusion may be greater than we had realized. This conversation is not just taking place within higher education, but in broader society. Movements like #blacklivesmatter are bringing structural inequality and how this affects black communities in particular to the forefront of the diversity and inclusion debate.

In July, five students shared their experiences and insights drawing upon their personal educational experiences and the context within their home country. On October 20th, we will hear from five university leaders.

This webinar is organized by GAPS, Global Access to Postsecondary Education initiative in collaboration with COE, Council for Opportunity in Education in Washington DC, United States and ECHO, Center for Diversity Policy in The Hague, The Netherlands
