This is the audio and video recording of the panel discussion on native speakerism in ELT Burcu Akyol, Josh Round, Christopher Graham and I did at IATEFL 2016. In it we addressed the problem of favouritism ‘native speakers’ enjoy in ELT from the perspective of a ‘non-native speaker’, recruiter and a teacher trainer. Each of the presenters offered some practical solutions for moving towards greater professional equality between ‘native’ and ‘non-native speakers’. There was also a 30 minute Q&A session.
