ECIS is deeply committed to promoting diversity, equity, inclusion and justice in our world.
The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) commitment of ECIS is wholly aligned and is integral to our work. ECIS aims to highlight best practices, signpost to excellent teaching and learning resources, offer mentorship for everyone wishing to lead and engage with this work, and to promote and effect changes within international schools to conduct a self-study, and work towards equal and just practices.
We know it is imperative that as educators we embody the desire to learn and to combine reflective practice with a kind, curious and caring approach to creating change in inequitable structures. Together with our DEIJ champions and carefully selected partner organisations, we provide support and resources to staff and students in our member schools and beyond, as we work towards our ongoing mission to create more just, compassionate and sustainable societies.
We aim to create opportunities for educators and students to learn with and from one another. To this end we provide mentorship programmes that encourage agency and self-efficacy. We strive to create a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, and has equal access to opportunities.
“With kindness and caring we will create mindful progress.”
Executive Director, ECIS
