Workshop Overview

The murder of George Floyd last spring arguably represents a watershed moment in US history, painstakingly highlighting longstanding racial injustices. This awareness has extended across the world, uniting individuals across differences to unite in advocacy for a more just and equitable world. Notwithstanding, international schools often erroneously believe that the mere presence of national and linguistic diversity automatically yields internationalmindedness and intercultural competency, and fosters an inclusive school. Longitudinal research finds the exact opposite. Inclusion is always intentional. Moreover, international schools represent unique challenges and opportunities in light of the various national frameworks.

During this webinar, Dr. Derrick Gay will guide participants through introspection leveraging the Intercultural Competency Framework and strategies for AASSA schools to foster racial inclusion in schools.

Dr. Derrick Gay is an international educational consultant with 22 administrator and consultant. A sought-after facilitator and keynote, Dr. Gay has partnered with over 500 schools and businesses around  the world. In this capacity, he collaborates with schools and organizations to cultivate intercultural competency, promote empathy, and deepen inclusion.

Fluent in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and proficient in Portuguese, Dr. Gay is a recognized expert in Global Education, often speaking and writing about Intercultural Competency and Global Citizenship. He delivered the 2015 keynote at the Association for the Advancement of International Education; the 2016 Education First Global Conference Keynote in Lima, Perú; and he recently delivered the 2017 keynote at the Association des Ecoles Francaises en Amerique du Nord and the 2017 keynote La Mission Laique Conference in Deauville, France.  In 2019, he facilitated workshops at Association of American Schools in Latin America, in addition to his work supported clients in Latin America.
