Johanne Jean-Pierre Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at York University. She conducts research projects in English and in French in the fields of sociology of education, child and youth studies, sociology of race and ethnicity, and research methodology. Her current research projects investigate the social-cultural dynamics that can inform promising policies and practices to work with primarily Francophone minority communities and Black Canadian communities. Mentoring the next generation of underrepresented racialized scholars, particularly Black students, has been an important focus of her scholarship. This is why she is a volunteer in the Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) Mentor Programme for Black, Indigenous, and Racialized Graduate Students. Participating in ENRICH (Empowering next-generation researchers in perinatal and child health) is another opportunity to mentor researchers through various networking and professional development initiatives. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling and spending time with friends.
