In the current academic landscape, Senior International Officers (SIOs) and Chief Diversity Officers (CDOs) find many similarities in their responsibilities, with potential opportunities to collaborate in order to align and achieve their respective goals. This webinar will explore and help participants maximize this potential for campus synergy through tips and best practices for SIO and CDO partnerships.  Join us as the presidents of AIEA and NADOHE (National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education) identify where internationalization and diversity initiatives may converge and explore ways to make the most of these opportunities.
