About Najwa Rahmani
Najwa Rahmani is the founder, owner, and lead Educational Consultant of Educational Architect.
“A society has no chance of success if its women are uneducated...”
Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns
Najwa is a cisgender woman and an Uzbek-speaking Turk who immigrated from northern Afghanistan at a young age. Her family fled the violence in Afghanistan to pursue a safer and better life as settler immigrants in Canada. Her background has given her a deep understanding of the privilege of accessing education and the societal harm caused by denying education to marginalized communities. Thus, she has passion and expertise in making education accessible to equity-seeking populations.
Najwa is exceptionally educated in social justice, adult instruction, design, and digital technology. She has an Assaulted Women’s and Children’s Counsellor/Advocate Diploma and an Instructing Adults Certificate from George Brown College in Toronto, Ontario. Presently, she is completing her Master of Education in Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Calgary, where she is specializing in: (1) Leading and Learning in a Digital Age; (2) Collaborative Creativity for Social Innovation and Human-centred Design; and (3) Educational Research.
Najwa designs, develops, and delivers high-quality educational experiences that combine her social justice, adult instruction, design, and digital technology expertise. Her education has equipped her with a robust playbook of techniques and best practices that she harnesses in developing interdisciplinary and technology-enhanced curricula. Notably, she developed the Trades and Career Planning curriculum for the highly successful and unique training and employment program at George Brown College—Women Transitioning to Trades and Employment (WTTE). Traditional systems and practices of education can reproduce systems of oppression, but they can be challenged and rebuilt. Najwa has the insight and expertise to envision and create educational experiences that serve all populations.
