More about Ebony Ellis and her experience as an Intercultural & DEI Educator 

When it comes to international experiences, intercultural education holds the key role of promoting cultural awareness and understanding. Intercultural learning helps to bridge gaps by encouraging individuals to think about identity, experiences and culture from a wider perspective. It is a learning experience that develops skills and abilities to understand different worldviews and relate with people from diverse backgrounds. 

We are honored to introduce Ebony Ellis - our Partnership Engagement and Learning Innovation Manager - an expert in the field of intercultural education, experiential learning and DEI in international education. At CulturaGo, Ebony leads the way in creating inclusive learning environments and intercultural opportunities through partnerships and the implementation of educational strategies. 

With a Bachelor’s degree in History & Education and a Master’s degree in Leisure, Youth & Human Services - Ebony is well-equipped to share the expertise that backed her throughout her career, working with international students, educators and organizations. As an expert educator, Ebony has seen firsthand the positive effects of intercultural and experiential education on students’ development and successful international initiatives.

Her experiences include working with the University of Michigan Center for Global and Intercultural Study - leading the diversity and inclusion programming - and the U.S. Department of Defense - supporting families, children and youths worldwide. Recently, as founder and managing director of Aventurine Intercultural Learning Community and Educational Consulting, Ebony Ellis has been offering interactive workshops exploring the intersectionality of intercultural learning and DEI from a social justice perspective. 

We believe that intercultural education is a key component not only in supporting the growth and success of students and professionals, but also in creating a more inclusive and equitable world. At CulturaGo, we ensure our aim by working with experts like Ebony Ellis.
