Paul Gorski
Founder, EdChange;
Associate Professor, Integrative Studies, George Mason University

"My professional and spiritual passions lie in building movements and engaging in processes for creating equitable and just organizations, schools, and communities. My goal is continual transformation toward equity and justice within my Self, within our Communities and Schools, and within Society.
In addition to my associate professorship at George Mason University, where I helped found and run an undergraduate program and minor in Social Justice and Human Rights, I am the founder of EdChange, a coalition of educators and activists providing professional development on educational equity, creating free resources for fellow educators and activists, and modeling a commitment to moving beyond celebrating the joys of diversity and toward equity literacy in schools and communities.
I have worked with schools, colleges and universities, community organizations, and other organizations all over the world to help build the competencies and literacies necessary to authenticate diversity and equity efforts."
