Call for Diversity and Generational Renewal Committee Membership

Are you interested in Diversity and Generational Renewal?

Do you want to play an important role in shaping the next generation of ICSEI?

What is ICSEI?

For more than 30 years, The International Congress of School Effectiveness and Improvement (ICSEI) has been dedicated to improving education and making it more effective by connecting policy, practice and research. ICSEI has a long history of running successful international congresses and supporting publications and network interactions that further its mission (for a description, please click here).

Why Diversity and Generational Renewal?

Members are seeking broader and more diverse involvement and representation and greater opportunities for newer members to add to the work of ICSEI and its impact. We established the Diversity and Generational Renewal (DAGR) working group in response, and recently turned it into a standing committee. We are now looking to recruit ICSEI members to join this DAGR standing committee and join the efforts to make ICSEI even more international and diverse. Interested members committed to this work are invited to join the committee.

What could be your role?

How can we ensure that diversity and generational renewal are an embedded feature of ICSEI? How do we develop more innovative formats and topics to encourage wider participation among diverse individuals and groups? How do we establish and expand a broad platform of mainstage congress presentations? How do we offer a dynamic and inclusive social program? Who is currently attracted to joining ICSEI and who else might be in the future? These are the main issues to consider for the DAGR standing committee.

How can you get involved in the DAGR standing committee?

Please send an expression of interest to

Applicants should be ICSEI members and have participated in at least one ICSEI congress. Applications will be reviewed by the ICSEI Board. The review will be completed by the end of March 2019.
