Discover DEI + Intercultural in Higher Education — Solutions that Work

Get best practices and tools from a real-world ‘rapid development’ initiative that established a university’s Office of Inclusion to transform a ‘culture of silence’ around issues of diversity on campus into a  ‘culture of dialogue’.

Sign up for our 2023 IDD Global Community of Practice Calls

Two (complimentary) sessions are held every other month so that as a global community of practitioners and scholars we recharge and strengthen our individual and collective impact worldwide.

Learn about our inaugural DAD Learning Lab & Community Week

In July 2022, we had a glorious week in Groningen, NL where we learned, created and connected with peers and faculty from around the world. We’re excited to repeat and expand this in 2023.

IDD's After Hours: Around the Table with The Experts

Expert programming helps you tackle real-world issues

seid dabei

Join IDD Expert Nagesh Rao, PhD, to learn how unacknowledged misunderstandings and tensions about cultural/identity differences can be addressed to transform a ‘culture of silence’ around issues of diversity on campus into a  ‘culture of dialogue’ for students, faculty, staff and other stakeholders.

He’ll share community-based approaches and practical strategies to help you and your institution answer the question: How can we help often fragmented and “under pressure” higher education institutions rapidly —yet sustainably— activate Diversity & Inclusion strategies that actually work?

Registration is open for Wednesday, 19 January 2023 and Monday, 30 January @4-5.15pm GMT
*ADDITIONAL 2023 EXPERTS & SESSIONS COMING IN DECEMBER*

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

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.

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.
