Roselle Gonsalves is an immigrant settler to Canada, and comes to the CCDI with over 10 years of teaching experience, in a variety of different sectors, and in a diversity of formats including small group workshops and large classes. She is well-versed in curriculum and instructional design, and has spent the last few years in roles dedicated to the design and delivery of EDI programming, most recently in the post-secondary sector. Roselle has a deep appreciation for diversity in its many splendid forms: from religio-cultural expressions to variations in styles of learning.
After completing a master's degree at the University of Toronto in Sexual Diversity Studies and Religious Studies, Roselle earned a PhD at the University of Calgary in the study of transnational immigrant identity, Canadian multiculturalism, and intersectionality. Roselle approaches her work with a sense of humour, and a reflexive, intersectional, anti-oppression, anti-racism framework to allow for more inclusive ways of understanding the world. She believes passionately in equitable access to support and resources. In her spare time, Roselle is a novice curler, loves travel, and enjoys a good true crime podcast!
