Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Leaders

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Leaders

DEI Leaders in School

Are you leading on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in your school, academy, college or trust?

We believe that every school should have someone who is designated to take on this leadership role, someone who is dedicated to being or committed to becoming a DEI activist.

We will provide a number of ways to support schools who want to develop their DEI efforts and who are ready to nominate, develop and remunerate a DEI leader.

We will help DEI leaders to connect, to collaborate and to share best practice through:
  • Our DEI Leaders Programme
  • Our DEI Leaders Network
  • Our DEI Leaders Conference

Join Our DEI Leaders in School Programme

As facilitators we have been careful to construct a programme that recognises the ongoing nature of this work. Our delivery is sensitive to the fact that not every school is where they want to be and so with a non-judgemental and practical approach the programme will support each school we work with to set out their current roadblocks and plan a sustainable route map.

We believe that supporting and challenging individuals in their beliefs around diversity, equity and inclusion matters, as well as ensuring cultural commitment to the work at a strategic level, are the best means of securing safe and inclusive schools for the whole community.

This programme is to support schools who want to develop their DEI efforts and who are ready to nominate, develop and remunerate a DEI leader.

Join Our DEI Leaders Network

We have pledged to create a space for DEI Leaders to come together regularly to connect with other DEI Leaders to reflect, to discuss, to share best practice and to potentially collaborate.

We are planning to hold an annual DEI leaders conference each June to bring the network together, to reflect, to discuss, to share and to support each other on their journeys.

Come and affirm the progress you have made, celebrate the impact you are having, network with likeminded people and develop your DEI strategy for next academic year.

Join us on Wednesday 30th June for our inaugural annual DEI leaders conference.

Recruit and Remunerate a DEI Leader

A DSL and a SENDCO are appointed through a formal process, they have a Job Description and a Personal Specification to clarify their remit, they have clarity around their role and their responsibility, they are trained, they are line managed, they have a budget and they are allocated leadership time.

Please ensure that your DEI Leader is provided with the same support to increase their sphere of influence as a whole school leader to lead the necessary change. The DEI Leader is an essential whole school responsibility.

Lots of schools, academies and trusts are asking for support with the framing of a DEI Leadership role in their organisation. Please review our exemplar recruitment pack and documents to support the recruitment process of  a DEI Leader.
