News Flash! TESOL France Receives International Praise! 

On April 14th, at the IATEFL Conference (International Association for Teachers of English as a Foreign Language) in Birmingham TESOL France received praise from the Plenary Speaker, Silvana Richardson, during her session "The ‘native factor’, the haves and the have-nots". TESOL France was praised for our Position Statement Opposing Discrimination on our Jobs List for members. We go to great lengths to encourage and convince employers to remove discriminatory requirements in their job announcements, particularly those asking for native speakers only. We would like to thank Silvana, IATEFL and TESOL International for their kind support of TESOL France on this very important initiative.

If you would like to watch the recording of Silvana's plenary session, it, as well as about a hundred other recorded talks will be made available here.

For more information on Equal Opportunity Initiatives, we encourage you to visit the website run by our good friend, Marek Kiczkowiak.

Our Position Statement Opposing Discrimination on our Jobs List
TESOL is opposed to discrimination that affects the employment and professional lives of the TESOL members (TESOL Forward Plan, revised 1999) on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, language background (e.g. we don't support ads that ask for native speakers only), disability, health/medical condition, including HIV/AIDS, age, religion, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation.
