As educators working at international schools, we must be culturally competent in creating safe spaces for students coming from diverse backgrounds while still upholding the values of global citizenship. This presentation will explore various challenges and opportunities that educators may encounter when faced with issues such as racism, sexism, homophobia, and other equity-focused concerns.

A workshop approach will address power dynamics in society with special recognition given to working in an international school context.

Participants will be given the opportunity to share their reactions to real-life scenarios that will offer further context to the discussion. In addition, teachers will walk away with strategies that they can implement in their classrooms. We look forward to engaging in a meaningful workshop in a judgment-free space that will enrich our diverse classrooms and practices.
