Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Education with Gail-Ann Wilson Mitchell

In this intimate conversation, cultural diversity educator Gail-Ann Wilson Michell shares her reality growing up ‘being the only’; a young Black girl and then woman and educator in Edmonton, including sharing her experiences in school. She describes important parts of her work including her take on what she calls ‘the six letter word’; its historical context and its role in modern life. Gail-Ann shares beautiful, vulnerable and heartbreaking stories about her work as a teacher and her forthcoming role in the Alberta Teachers Association, including describing the single most racist act she’s ever endured. There’s so much more captured in this conversation that ends with a powerful, accessible next step — call to action — for educators everywhere in fostering greater equity, diversity and inclusion in their classrooms. This is the first of a 3-part series, co-hosted by Diana’s friend and colleague, Nat Lumby.I'm all about interesting projects with interesting people! Let's Connect on the web or via Instagram. :)
