Diversity Abroad Community Agreement
Diversity Abroad is committed to providing all participants with the opportunity to benefit equitably from Diversity Abroad events and activities. All attendees — including all speakers, vendors, media representatives, exhibitors, sponsors, students, staff, and volunteers — are expected to follow the community agreement as outlined below:
Respectful engagement. Promote mutual respect and understanding by acknowledging other perspectives, constructively confronting differences, and actively listening.
Challenge by choice. Learning happens outside of our comfort zones; however, the choice to engage in discussion and offer perspective is solely up to each individual.
Diversity Abroad Conference Liaison
The Conference liaison’s role is to be available for attendees (GSLS and general), should the need arise, as a neutral impartial body to assist in determining options to help resolve conflicts, problematic issues or concerns in line with Diversity Abroad’s Conference Community Agreement.
They will bring systemic concerns to the attention of the conference organizers for resolution.
The liaison’s role is to maintain a neutral/impartial position with respect to the concerns raised, work at an informal level of the organizational system, and is independent of formal organizational structures.
