Community Agreement

Diversity Abroad Community Agreement

The Diversity Abroad community is an inclusive space for those who have made a commitment to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in global education. Diversity Abroad does not tolerate discrimination or harassment at any time during its events or online learning opportunities based on race, color, religion or belief, national, social or ethnic origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender expression, or veteran status.

Participants — including all attendees, speakers, vendors, media representatives, exhibitors, sponsors, students, staff, and volunteers — are expected to follow the community agreement at all Diversity Abroad events 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.

Onsite: We ask that attendees be mindful of each other’s comfort level when sharing spaces and letting attendees know about personal protocols such as whether it is okay not to handshake or hug and to always respect others’ personal space.
