In 2021, as part of AIFS’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, the Au Pair in America division created a DEI group for employees to learn, explore, and discuss topics in equity, especially as they relate to the work of cultural exchange. This initiative kicked off with a DEI Learning Series. The goal of the series was to bring together members of our team from across the US and around the world for learning and discussion opportunities, centered around equity and inclusion. Since the 2021 spring kickoff, the APIA DEI group has hosted book clubs, movie discussions, and guest speakers. To this day, we continue this work, growing in our participation, and supporting the APIA DEI mission. We are committed to doing the best work we can including all types of diversity within our programs and to bringing the (WHOLE) world together!
