Recognizing, Acknowledging, and Addressing Inequities in the Lives of Young Men of Color Task Force

In its ongoing pursuit to build and promote diverse, global learning communities while endorsing the inherent value and dignity of each person, IBSC established and resourced a diverse global task force that will provide strategic, longitudinal oversight as we seek to build antiracist schools that embrace all intersectionalities of each boy’s identity and create greater access and care for boys of color within member schools worldwide. The task force has picked up the gauntlet endorsed by the coalition’s commitment to educational equity. It will report back to the IBSC trustees in January and to member schools at the 2021 IBSC Annual Conference in Barcelona, Spain.
