rosa aronsonI’m delighted to share with you this interview with Rosa Aronson, who’s the Executive Director of the TESOL International Association. We discussed how TESOL International tries to fight against different forms of discrimination in our industry, including that of Non-Native English Speaking Teachers (NNESTs). You can find position statements issued by TESOL here.

On their website TESOL also lists third-party job ads and I asked Rosa how they ensure that all ads are in-line with TESOL’s anti-discrimination policies and free of any discriminatory language. You can find the job listings here. Finally, we discussed how local Teaching Associations could get involved in supporting equal employment opportunities for English teachers.
