Developing Diversity Programs in International Schools

Developing Diversity Programs in International Schools

By Jen Cort

Jen Cort is an education consultant in the areas of equity, inclusion, diversity and justice. In this podcast, Jen opens up a "third space"— a place outside our familiar home and work environments — in order that we might begin to engage in some of the provocative questions that need to be addressed. Listen in as Jen speaks with some of the leading thinkers and doers in the field.

Kristen Pollard is an American living and working overseas in the international education system for over ten years, teaching English language and literature in schools in the US, Germany, and the Netherlands.  Her current position as the IBMYP Coordinator helps me support and manage curriculum development with staff across grades 6-10. Kristen’s particular focus is developing a more forward-thinking concept-, inquiry-based style of teaching and learning within an inclusive environment that supports our international students’ diverse needs and identities. 
Claire O’Brien is originally from Ireland and works in the Netherlands as a teacher of IBDP Geography and Student Coordinator for well-being. I have an MBA in educational leadership with a focus on inclusive education. Claire is lucky enough to serve as a regional pride organization board member. She also works as a consultant/trainer for institutions looking to instill confidence in staff to discuss issues around DEIJ and develop a curriculum that considers student identity.
