International Issues

The International Issues committee recommends policies and practices to enable IASWG to be a truly international organisation. This is about ensuring that the organisation works in ways that respect diverse ways of doing things and understands what is needed to be inclusive of difference. As the number of members and new chapters from different parts of the globe increases, so does the need to be welcoming and responsive to different needs.

In particular, language and cultural differences need to be accommodated and celebrated within the organisation in order for internationalism to thrive. The International Affairs Committee considers practical ways that IASWG can put these principles into daily practice. The Co-chairs of the Committee on International Issues are Mark Doel and Lorrie Gardella.
