As a Mixed White/Black Caribbean Senior Leader, former Headteacher and teacher of 20 years, this is a topic that is close to my heart and one that I am passionate about changing by, yes, you guessed it… BEING VISIBLE!
I spoke at the #DiverseEd conference at the weekend and was overwhelmed by the response. I was visible, in sharing my story of being the change I wish to see, ensuring that I plant seeds to grow the vision and aspiration of future generations. I can not lie… it was strange talking to a screen and not feeling the energy of the room, not seeing how many people were tuned in! 5 minutes was not enough to convey everything that I wanted to, so I’ve put the rest on paper, for you to read, feel, resonate and muse on the importance of the topic.
