OUR APPROACH

To embrace Differences requires a Different approach.

Intersecting focus areas

Complex and interconnected real-world challenges need holistic solutions. To meet these, our focus is anchored in four interconnected content pillars:

intercultural communication,

diversity, equity and inclusion,

global competence,

global learning/active global citizenship education.

We explore the intersections between these areas to advance the field and help you bring about more sustainable solutions that work.

IDD Core Content

Truly international reach

Today more than ever, local issues are global issues are local issues. To live our values and be more effective, we need to challenge our assumptions, and learn from and work with one another around the world. The IDD aims for representation and a presence in every region in order to offer truly Different perspectives.

Accessible, inclusive, inspirational community

We provide connection and support in addition to deep learning for practitioners, academics and all other Differences Specialists. The IDD is open to all in the field—and welcomes those new to it—with opportunities tailored to your experience level.
