“I’m a different teacher now. I resist the labels; the pigeon-holing; the merging of ‘equality and
diversity’ into something meaningless, about ticking a box. As Audre Lorde said ‘There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives.’”
Identities Programme participant
Last week we shared the final report, as this project draws to a close. Our aim was ambitious – to ‘change the way that educators talk about diversity, intersectionality and identity’. We wanted to create an environment where individual participants and their students were able to express their identities safely without prejudice. Where ‘E+D’ were separated back out and teachers were embedding diversity in a considered and transformational way. The results were astonishing; not only due to the level of thinking and individual exploration but the way in which people chose to think – by creating pieces of art and writing poetry.
The full report is attached below, and all the resources and creations can be viewed on our beautiful Padlet.
