Dr. Knight chaired the high-impact NAEA Taskforce on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion that brought forth sixteen recommendations that currently serve as a strategic priority for advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout the NAEA community, including the recommendation to create the NAEA Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Commission on which she serves as a commissioner-at Large. Besides university-level teaching, Dr. Knight has served as a Pre-K-12 art teacher, an art museum educator, and a principal of elementary and secondary public schools. She teaches, presents, and leads workshops and seminars that foster diversity and support fair, ethical, and inclusive teaching and learning environments. Serving as an expert diversity consultant to educational organizations, businesses, and a Fortune 500 Company, her teaching, research, and leadership knowledge and skills are informed through global travels and from scholarly pursuits that have allowed her to cross borders of technologies, disciplines, and institutions. Having broken a glass ceiling by being the first woman of color elected to serve as NAEA president, her motivation to work stems from her advocacy and long-term commitment to achieving equitable systems where everyone thrives. Dr. Knight’s work concerning racial justice and intercultural teacher education, culturally competent teaching, equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice is published broadly. Her presentations span national and international locations, including Austria, Canada, China, Finland, Germany, Korea, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, and Switzerland, among other areas. Her projects are equity-minded and diversity-focused, including two recently published co-edited and co-authored books, Lobby Activism and Teaching and Assessing Social Justice Art Education: Power, Politics, and Possibilities.
