Pedagogy in Action: Teaching Culturally Relevant Leadership

Vivechkanand S. Chunoo (V), Kathleen Callahan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


All too frequently, leadership educators are positioned to teach from culturally sensitive and inclusivity-minded perspectives, yet rarely are they prepared to do so effectively. This exploration of culturally relevant leadership pedagogy begins by offering a broad literature base to understand culturally relevant pedagogy from a range of diverse scholars. Drawing from the Culturally Relevant Leadership Learning framework (Bertrand Jones, Guthrie, & Osteen, 2016), we synthesize recommendations into key considerations for leadership educators. Finally, we conclude with the case of Anytown—an example of culturally relevant leadership pedagogy in action beyond the classroom.
