A space for teachers and leaders to explore diversity, equity and inclusion and how they can better support it within their schools and trusts.
What is the Whole Education DEI series?
In November 2020, WE started the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion series as a way to encourage thinking and provoke discussion on important issues.
Hosted by expert Hannah Wilson, one of our Associate Directors and Co-Founder of #WomenEd and #DiversityEd, sessions take place fortnightly and are free and open to all. Events will alternate between a webinar format where you’ll hear from experts in the field of diversity, equity and inclusion, or a forum style where you’ll have space to step back and discuss the issues with other colleagues.
We’ll explore how you’re developing a DEI strategy for your school or trust, give you access to inspiring and informative keynote speakers and provide a space to ask for support or share best practice.
We hope you can join us!
What can I expect?
Since the start of the series, we’ve welcomed some fantastic speakers and hosted some brilliant discussions. You can find all of the topics for our upcoming events above but topics we’ve covered in the past include:
- Disability awareness with Liz Wright
- Sexual orientation with Hannah Jepson
- Anti-racism with Sabrina Edwards
- Sex and gender equality with Nicole Ponsford
