Session 04.1

Rebooting internationalisation through an EDI lens

Adaptability, resilience and community are three virtues that lay the foundation of equity, diversity and inclusion – and all three were challenged profoundly by the pandemic. As we reduce our screen time again and look towards a new (old) normal, what lessons have we learned? How was the imbalance in EDI virtues dealt with? This session will draw on the experiences of institutions in the Global South and North, reflecting on EDI and the way forward.
