DEI Project in Latin America: Plan and preliminary findings

Bossu, Carina and Vladimirschi, Viviane (2021). DEI Project in Latin America: Plan and preliminary findings. The Global OER Graduate Network (GO-GN).



Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) has been in the GO-GN’s agenda since it’s foundation in 2013, but it was in 2018 when its first project directly related to DEI was developed. The first phase of GO-GN DEI project had a focus on DEI practices in Open Education in Africa. Findings of this first stage informed the initial GO-GN guidelines for DEI. These findings have also been used as a foundation for phase 2 of the DEI project, which focuses on Latin America.

This blog post presents the progress of phase two so far, including data gathering and analysis processes, as well as changes made to adapt the project and its deliverables to the global pandemic. We will explore some of the preliminary findings and recommendations from phase two and discuss some of the similarities and differences between both phases.
