The Association of International Educators & Leaders of Color (AIELOC)
AIELOC began as an affinity group on Facebook on March 14, 2017 after a colleague was discouraged from applying for a leadership position at an international school due her race and country of origin not matching the expectation. In January 2020 the group moved to become an association open to all past, present, and future educators and leaders around the world committed to speaking up, learning, advocating for change, taking action in addressing racism and discrimination in the international school ecosystem, amplifying the work of BIPOC, and researching topics of interest.

Debra Rader, International Educator, Author, Consultant and Workshop Facilitator of Teaching and Learning for Intercultural Understanding
Developing intercultural understanding is at the heart of international-mindedness, global competence and global citizenship education, and promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, and antiracist education. It is an essential disposition and competence to develop in ourselves, each other and the children we teach.
Teaching and learning for intercultural understanding is an ongoing journey, and as such we value collaboration and aim to support our international school colleagues as they engage in this vital work. Professional development is most effective when we apply our new learning to our work, and reflect on our successes and challenges as we continue the learning process.
All ECIS members are welcome to attend ‘Dialogue with Debra’ meet-ups offered from 12.00-12.45 on the first Thursday of each month to ask questions, float ideas, receive feedback, and share practice and resources. This will be of particular interest to colleagues who have attended prior Institutes, are interested in learning more about developing intercultural understanding, have a copy of Debra’s book, Teaching and Learning for Intercultural Understanding: Engaging Young Hearts and Minds (Routledge, 2018), and are enrolled in the ECIS Preparing for International Teaching Certificate (PITC) and Awareness in Global Perspectives courses.
