Through a series of virtual sessions between 7th and 12th June 2021, the conference features:

    • A keynote from BAMEed’s Allana Gay on igniting the leader in you
    • Practical advice from RSAcademics on how to achieve your first Headteacher or Deputy Head position
    • Free mentoring sessions with BAMEed mentors
    • The opportunity to register for 1:1 meetings with recruiters from RSAcademics
    • A series of ‘Inspiring stories’ videos
    • For governors: Johan Jensen and Louise Ishani from All-in Education advising on how to embed inclusive recruitment

This conference is being funded and delivered by a partnership involving BAMEed, RSAcademics and All-in Education. We have come together as partners because we share a commitment to increasing diversity amongst senior leadership in schools and have developed this conference in response to input and feedback from the BAMEed network.

Fi Glover, BBC Radio 4, presents the longer weekly edition of the programme on the shared experience of being in lockdown and beyond.

In this week’s edition two music producers and DJs from different generations and backgrounds share their passion for the club scene and talk about how they have had to adapt to a world without it; two granddaughters of Betty Campbell, the first black head teacher in Wales , discuss racial equality, the prejudices that need unpicking and how to raise self-confident black and mixed race children; and two women who work in education, both of different faiths and cultures, talk about their shared commitment to change through action rather than words.
