You are Not Alone: Leaders for Race Equality

Originating from NAHT’s first equality network for Black, Asian and minority ethnic members, the ‘You Are Not Alone: Leaders for Race Equality’ book shares the personal experiences of 14 NAHT members from Asian, African, Caribbean and multiple backgrounds. It includes personal and challenging stories of the discrimination faced as both leaders and individuals through school, university, interviews and promotion, often having to prove themselves at every step on the way to leadership and facing both overt and covert racism from others.

The book is intended to help raise awareness and understanding of the issues facing Black, Asian and minority ethnic teachers and leaders, and to offer support and hope to those facing racism and discrimination. Common to many stories is the impact of the school environment and how vital the support and influence of role models can be.

We, therefore, encourage members to not only read the book themselves but also to share within your networks and local areas.

 


If you are interested in hearing more about the book or our wider equality work, then please contact policy@naht.org.uk.

Use #YouAreNotAlone if you wish to join the discussion on social about the book. 

NAHT Leaders for Race Equality

NAHT Leaders for Race Equality is open to all Black, Asian and minority ethnic NAHT members, across all roles, phases and sectors, including those who may have retired from the profession. The network provides a space for these members to come together to discuss the experiences and issues facing them as school leaders within NAHT and the profession more widely.

The knowledge and experience from the network aim to inform and deepen NAHT's expertise. It will also ensure we strengthen our representation for Black, Asian and minority ethnic members.

If you would like to join, email organising@naht.org.uk to find out more.
