KINOTA BRAITHWAITE -Diversity Author & Educator
 "A vision of classrooms where every student feels included, valued, and respected."

"Acclaimed anti-racism and anti-bullying diversity author and educator Kinota Braithwaite, renowned for his TV appearances on NHK World Japan, DW International News, and Ohayo Nippon, has earned recognition from the US Embassy Council for Diversity and Inclusion for his impactful contributions.


His work against racism and bullying has been featured in Tokyo Weekender, Toyokezai, Asahi Newspaper for Elementary School Students, InTouch Magazine, and the CCCJ magazine, underscoring his influence in these critical areas.

The catalyst for Kinota's writing and speaking career was a heartfelt response to bullying faced by his daughter Mio due to her skin color at her Japanese elementary school.

From elementary schools to Fortune 100 giants like Morgan Stanley, and prestigious universities such as Keio and The University of Tokyo, Braithwaite's engagements reflect his unique ability to connect with a diverse array of audiences, showcasing his exceptional adaptability and the universal resonance of his message.
