Esther Hurh

Ever since her college years fighting for the establishment of an Asian American studies program, Esther Hurh has committed her energy and talents in the field of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and social justice education. She currently works with a number of different organizations in developing and delivering curriculum and training programs, and managing high-end deliverable projects – all with the focus on dismantling the hierarchy of human value.

Previously, Esther was the Director of the Training & Curriculum Department in the National Education Division of ADL. She has authored a number of curriculum lessons, journal articles, and blog posts, and has traveled all over the country and internationally to train others on the delivery and practice of DEI programs and principles.

Esther received her Ed.M. in Human Development and Psychology at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and her B.A. in Political Science at Northwestern University. She resides in Chicago, Illinois and is board president of KAN-WIN, a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating gender-based violence in the Asian immigrant community.
