Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion into Mobility Programmes: the Model of the Aga Khan University’s Virtual Internship Programme
Onsite internships are conventional to global mobility, giving students cultural and experiential opportunities when travelling and visiting other countries. However, on-site internships are limited to specific demographics due to issues around affordability, financial security, geo-political risk, gender, disability, and travel restrictions. This session will explore the value of the virtual internships model and how they are changing the face of educational opportunities globally in new, equitable and diverse ways.
