Diverse Educators is a grassroots community that creates a space for intersectional conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion in education. Training opportunities include webinars, coaching, leadership programmes and conferences (both face to face and virtual).
The Co-Founders, Hannah Wilson and Bennie Kara, are educational leaders who are passionate about a meaningful commitment to doing the inner work: to be better informed, more confident and more empathetic to the lived experience of diverse people; in order to do the outer work: to create a culture of belonging for all and to deliver an inclusive curriculum where diverse experiences are represented.
Our vision is that everyone is celebrated in every classroom in every school.
Our mission is to be a collaborative community that celebrates successes and amplifies stories of diverse educators.
Our work is underpinned by our values: Promoting Acceptance; Increasing Visibility; Encouraging Celebration; Creating Belonging; Enabling Learning.
Our annual event is held in the South each January, but in June we launched a virtual event which went viral. Speakers explored what diversity means for children, for teachers, for leaders, for governors and for the curriculum.
