IIE's commitment to diversity and inclusion, now and throughout our history, is a critical part of our effort to engage thoughtfully with all of our internal and external constituents around the world, and reaffirms our deep commitment to these principles.   We believe that racism and inequality are and have been inherently contradictory to our mission.  And while IIE has worked for over a century to build a more peaceful, equitable world, we recognize that there is much work yet to do.  We support programs with a universal commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, multiculturalism and international understanding and cooperation.
