Michelle Jean-Paul: Founder of the Educators of Colour Network

Why a passionate educational leader, who was the Founder of the Educators of Colour Network, says that while school staff were once comfortable talking about diversity, multiculturalism and equity, in recent months, has seen a shift that now includes white privilege. Michelle Jean-Paul, a woman of colour who self-identifies as BIPOC, shares her views on anti-racism and why, when she created the Educators of Color Network she wanted to include white as a colour. Michelle is currently working on her Ph.D. in Educational Administration, is an author, keynote speaker with expertise on issues of equality, diversity and inclusion within the context of educational settings.
