CISabroad Receives Go Abroad Innovation in Diversity Award

NAFSA 2016 was a big week for CISabroad, as they proudly accepted GoAbroad.com’s Innovation in Diversity award for their LGBTQ Ally training and resources. Along with webinars, online resources, and presentations CISabroad is hosting  a special LGBTQ-focused site visit in Athens, Greece – Monday, October 3rd through Wednesday, October 5th, 2016, which is an important part of our IIE Generation Study Abroad commitment. We will visit with the Fileefheri Symaxia party, which protects gay and lesbian rights, and meet with Rainbow families advocating for same-sex families, and SID, the Greek Transexual Association. This program will allow participants to gain insight and a first-hand look into international opportunities for LGBTQ students and/or gender studies departments.
