Intersectionality in Marketing and Recruiting: Defining “Underrepresented” in Study Abroad
When thinking about defining underrepresented groups from an institutional context:
- Why do we need to define them?
- Why is it important to our office/organizations and what we do?
What happens when we define these groups of students?
- How do these definitions impact the goals to improve diversity and inclusion in education abroad?
- Do our definitions include and/or exclude anyone? If so, who and why?
How has the process of defining these groups impacted resource allocation at your institution?
- How has it impacted program design at your institution?
What data do you, and your institution gather regarding student identities?
- How is this reflected in your office’s (and institution’s) mission statement and values?
