The <A+ Global Directory> pursues three objectives:

  • To highlight the multi-disciplinary global and diverse work going on in the Global South, North, East and West that is tackling bias in groundbreaking and creative ways.

  • To bring a broad range of experts together in a virtual space to share their research and vision, and begin a global network of collaboration with the world and one another.

  • To facilitate knowledge sharing and a platform for those interested in implementing some of the highlighted research with a view towards working to make the research and recommendations a lived reality together.
