This truly is a remarkable book. Given the plurality of perspectives, this book is beyond an essential read , but, in my view, must be categorised as a MUST READ for everyone connected with the education ecosystem. Not only does the reading of the entirety of this book empower the reader to imagine, empathise and understand an array of diverse experiences, but, by doing so, it supports the cognitive enactment of promoting understanding, tackling prejudice and the fostering of good relations between the Protected Characteristics from within. This is because the content of Diverse Educators makes visible those experiences which are often overlooked and made systemically invisible within education and society. When linked with the Equality Act 2010, the power of this book is realised because it demonstrates how, by thinking and working collectively, education is absolutely integral to the building of a fair and socially just society which includes everyone and leaves no one behind.
Claire Birkenshaw, Lecturer in Childhood and Education at the Carnegie School of Education, Leeds Beckett University
This book is a powerful tool containing the richness of lived experiences and the insight to move education practice on. An essential read for anyone involved in education.
Rachel Boyle, Head of Interdisciplinary Studies at Leeds Beckett University
I thought this was an impressive collection of voices, viewpoints and ideas which not only covers each Protected Characteristic individually, but also addresses the importance of intersectionality. An important read for everyone working in education, from trainee teachers and ECTs to experienced headteachers.
Sarah Brownsword, Lecturer in Primary Education, Primary PGCE Course Co-Director, UEA
This book makes an important contribution to an important topic. With its diverse range of passionate and expert contributors, each of whom brings a powerful personal narrative and perspective, this book is a must-read for anyone working in or with schools.
Andy Buck, Founder of Leadership Matters
A comprehensive and insightful book that lays out a path to move from intention to action in relation to inclusion within our schools. Such a wide range of lived experiences and knowledge make this a must read for anyone who is serious about creating sustainable cultural change and legacy.
James Coleman, Head of Operations and Training, NASBTT
A powerful collection of narratives offering valuable perspectives from across the protected characteristics and beyond. There should be a copy of this in every school.
Serdar Ferit, CEO of Lyfta Education
An upstanding and brave manifesto, diverse in its capture of global consciousness which weaves a golden thread of collective agency and supports by providing the tools for sustained systemic challenge and change. This will be the handbook for proactive DEI leaders who have identified the burning need in their establishments and those of us who are impatient to mainstream that change.
Karen Giles, B.Ed. (Hons), NPQH, FCCT, Interim Executive Headteacher
Ambitious in scope and, appropriately, diverse in perspective. I learned something valuable on every page.
Russell Hobby, CEO Teach First
Wow. This book is full of deep analyses of so many diversity issues yet also remains practical and down-to-earth. I have worked in education all my life but this book helped me to look afresh at so many key aspects and I learned a lot. You can choose to read the whole thing but also use it as a reference guide when particular issues come to the forefront. Teachers and educators will find it invaluable. Very impressive.
Steve Munby, Visiting Professor, Centre for Educational Leadership, University College London
This is a powerful resource for educators everywhere. A wide range of concise contributions with key takeaways are included with areas for deep reflection and strategies for practical implementation. We are treated to positive inclusive examples and personal stories that illustrate the power of language and action in smashing stereotypes. Highly recommended for school leaders and for teachers who seek to offer a learning environment where marginalised ideas and voices are truly heard.
Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive Chartered College of Teaching
This is a powerful collection of voices, views and stories, bringing together a thought-provoking range of genuinely diverse perspectives. These rich experiences, shared generously and openly, are anchored in a firm belief that we are able to change things for the better: a true manifesto.
Hilary Spencer, CEO at Ambition Institute
In a sector that lacks diversity of thought, representation and lived life experiences this book has the potential to make a great contribution. Its content is as diverse as its subject - giving the reader a huge range of perspectives and food for thought. What they all have in common though is a very practical, constructive approach giving actionable advice that has the potential to make a real difference.
Samantha Twiselton, Director of Sheffield Institute of Education
A genuinely extraordinary book. This is a careful exploration of all of the important complexity of diversity in schools. Hannah and Bennie have assembled a diverse array of knowledgeable and experienced writers who carefully pick apart each characteristic and educate us with warmth, wisdom and passion. In each chapter we re asked to reflect, we connect with stories that are sometimes inspiring, sometimes heartrending, and we re given plenty of evidence to contemplate. I can t wait to recommend it to colleagues and friends.
David Weston, Chief Executive of the Teacher Development Trust

Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.
Verna Myers
We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.
Maya Angelou
Intersectionality draws attention to invisibilities that exist in feminism, in anti-racism, in class politics, so, obviously, it takes a lot of work to consistently challenge ourselves to be attentive to aspects of power that we don t ourselves experience.
Kimberl Williams Crenshaw
We would like to say a massive thank you to our eleven Chapter Editors who have worked closely with their team of contributors to shape each chapter of the book. We appreciate the time, energy, experience and expertise you have each invested in this project.
Equally, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of the one hundred and five contributors who have shared their lived experience with us. Each contribution enables our readers to develop understanding of the issues they, and colleagues in the school system, have navigated.
We started Diverse Educators in 2017, but in the 2020-21 academic year (and in the middle of a global pandemic) we moved from being a hashtag, a twitter handle and an annual grassroots event into a fully-fledged organisation. We would like to acknowledge the support of our partners to enable this to happen: Alliance for Learning Teaching School Hub, The Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University, The Global Equality Collective, Lyfta and Teacheroo for helping our growth.
Finally, we would like to share our appreciation to the DiverseEd network. To everyone who has attended or spoken at an event, to each person who has written or read a blog, to each follower and amplifier on social media: we thank you for sharing our vision for a more diverse, equitable and inclusive education system for all.

The Epilogue
Co-founding WomenEd nearly seven years ago, as a Deputy Headteacher in London, catapulted me into the education grassroots world. Our successful arrival quickly led to the birth of the network s siblings in BAMEed, LGBTed and DisabilityEd - four networks serving as affinity groups for each identity group in education and their allies. Around this time a lot of my network was involved in leading or contributing to the DfE s Equality and Diversity Grants, which was system funding that Teaching Schools could bid for to support existing and aspiring leaders from under-represented groups. A group of us came together and initiated the Diversity Roundtables around this time to forge connections and collaborations across different individuals and organisations working in the DEI space.
As I started my first headship, I pulled back from being one of the national strategic leads of WomenEd
