Dr. Tanyss Munro has devoted her life to radically improving educational opportunities for disadvantaged people across Canada and abroad.

In Canada, her focus was on improving First Nations education. She began as a special-ed teacher, before becoming Principal of the flagship school in the Northwest Territories, as well as several other schools that struggled with high rates of drug and alcohol use, dropouts, and absenteeism. As a principal, and then as a Director of Education, all of that changed.

At the heart of her approach was an unwavering belief in students. Within her schools, they were leaders; she put them in charge of bush and community radio programmes, hot breakfast and lunch programmes, and student discipline tribunals. Student companies would run restaurants, host movie nights, and organize community events.

From there, her path took her to Parliament Hill, where she worked as Senior Advisor to two Ministers of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, as well as to the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations.

Tanyss then turned her sights to international development. Directing the Good Governance area of the Commonwealth of Learning, she worked with governments, universities, and NGOs around the world to create transparent and accountable governance.

Tanyss' belief in education as a human right has taken her from remote Arctic hamlets to the slums of South Asia. In recognition of her work, she received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
