diversity

ALEXANDRIA, VA—ACTFL is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has approved the release of a new Statement on Diversity and Inclusion in World Language Teaching and Learning.

We are both saddened and outraged by recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia. Racism, bigotry, and white supremacy, and the groups and individuals who promote these hateful ideologies, have no place in American society. The Board of Directors of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) shares your grief for those affected by the events in Virginia and reaffirms its commitment to linguistic, cultural, religious, gender, and ethnic diversity as a bedrock of strength and unity in the panoply of American life.

ALEXANDRIA, VA — In response to the growing concerns of our members, the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) reiterates its strong commitment to linguistic and cultural diversity as qualities that must be embraced in the U.S. and throughout the world. We stand with the entire language education community in underscoring our key values of collaboration, honoring multiple perspectives, and a free and open exchange of ideas.
