Conference Day Workshop


  • Riedwaan Kader, Grade 8 Humanities Teacher

    The International School of Nido de Aguilas
    Reidwaan joins the AISA DEIJ Design Team as an ex officio member as he is about to leave our region for Peru. Reidwaan’s passion and commitment for DEIJ is influenced by his own experience of being a proud and out gay African male in international education. Understanding the challenges of being an African gay man on the continent, Reidwaan wants to be part of a movement affecting change, including creating a safe and protective space for LGBTQ+ people to connect and he will make this happen, even from his new home in Peru.

    Graham is an educational writer, advisor and consultant with experience of leading professional learning in over 25 countries. He has published educational books in the UK and the USA as well as publishing articles and peer reviewed papers in the UK, New Zealand and Australia.
