null Newsletter No 9/2021 - A Fullness To Bring Out: On ethics-based higher education for advancing inclusion, equity, and diversity

Author: Amélé Ekué

“You have a fullness you need to bring out. It’s not an emptiness you need to cover up with things.” – Ayi Kwei Armah, Fragments

Inclusion, equity and diversity can pave the way for a transformation to a holistic and ethically-grounded higher education that unfolds the vision expressed by Ayi Kwei Armah "to bring out the fullness of humanity".

Education means overcoming resistance. As provocative as this statement may sound, it leads us into the heart of what is at stake in the current climate of higher education. The resistance all educators face is a defiance tied with all genuine transformation experiences. Letting go of acquired patterns of thinking and seeing the world differently, opening oneself to the possibility of embracing a new path. When Globethics.net embarked on the Building New Bridges Together conference journey in June 2020, the intention was to create a space of conversation on higher education as seen through the lens of ethics. At the time, we shared the hopes of so many that we would be able to traverse the global pandemic relatively swiftly, and hence our emphasis was on strengthening ethics in higher education after COVID-19.
