Value added: Building a Reputation for Diversity and Inclusivity - Do you as a school leader have what it takes?
The idea of a school reputation and a supportive school culture that supports and conveys diversity and inclusivity in an increasingly globalised and diversified world, assumes the pressing need for educational leaders to model intercultural communication competencies and promote them within their schools.
Orchestrating cultural alignment in schools along these lines is both strategic and critical to achieve a shared character and engagement. Looking for and capitalizing on opportunities to build diversity and inclusivity is also a precondition for a future that is characterized by a strong and authentic identity.
Being a culturally responsive educational leader is not just an issue of relating instructional techniques or adapting teaching to integrate assumed traits or customs of specific culture groups, it is acquiring a mindset that consciously seeks out and promotes diversity in the learning experience.
This presentation session will explore the necessity of school leaders to have well-developed intercultural competencies, explore ways in which these competencies and skills can be developed in order to lead your school in intercultural values.
