    Internationanl School of Dakar
    Dr Nneka Johnson is the current Director of Innovation/DEI Coordinator at the International School of Dakar (ISD) in Senegal, West Africa.

This is her second year leading DEI initiatives. Nneka is committed to the mission of justice and anti-racism and has joined the AISA DIEJ Design Team to extend her DEIJ advocacy efforts beyond her school at ISD to impact the wider AISA community.
  • Tiwana Merritt, Service Learning Coordinator/ Teaching & Learning Coach

    American International School of Johannesburg
    Tiwana is joining AISA’s DIEJ Design Team because it aligns well with her personal and professional values of creating more equitable spaces for those who have traditionally been marginalised and left out of 'mainstream stories'. Working in Africa offers a unique experience and one in which she feels in a position to support those who don't feel they have the space to do so for themselves. She believes AISA has a unique platform and the resources to support our international school community in moving beyond a traditional understanding of educational practice and joins the DEIJ Design Team to work toward a more just Africa.
