The ICAISA Board of Directors approved the following statement at its meeting on July 16, 2020:

ICAISA acknowledges the importance of diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism. As the realities of long-standing racial injustices are exposed around the world, the International Council Advancing Independent School Accreditation (ICAISA) commits to listen, learn, and act.  We believe accreditation is a lever for change that can foster inclusive school communities that uphold equity and justice for all. 

This statement will be a critical foundation for ICAISA as we move this work forward as an organization. We look forward to working together to lead change in this important area.
