The Association of International Educators and Leaders of Color (AIELOC) is devoted to amplifying the work of international educators and leaders of color with a focus on advocacy, learning, and research.

History of AIELOC

AIELOC began as an affinity group on Facebook on March 14, 2017 after a colleague was discouraged from applying for a leadership position at an international school due her race and country of origin not matching the expectation.

In January 2020 we moved this group to an association open to all past, present, and future educators and leaders around the world committed to speaking up, learning, advocating for change, taking action in addressing racism and discrimination in the international school ecosystem, amplifying the work of BIPOC, and researching topics of our own interest.
