Together Towards Inclusion

LEH's first Diversity and Inclusion Forum resulted in a lively and constructive discussion as 10 alumnae shared experiences of their time at school and their ideas for taking the initiative forward.

Head Mistress Heather Hanbury welcomed the alumnae, who had all voluteered to take part, to the virtual meeting last month and brought them up to speed with what the school is already doing to promote and embed equality, diversity and inclusion into classrooms and beyond.

Topics discussed by the alumnae, members of staff and the impartial moderator included how best to celebrate the history and culture of people of colour within the curriculum and ideas for increasing the diversity of the governing body and senior leaders at LEH.

LEH’s Diversity and Inclusion Champion Vakini Ranjan said: “Thank you so much to all the alumnae who took part in the forum.  It was a great success.  Hearing about their experience really opened my eyes to the challenges they faced and how they overcame them.  Additionally, it was wonderful to share with them how far the school has come in terms of Diversity and Inclusion over the last decade.”

The next Diversity and Inclusion Forum later this month will be with parents of current pupils, while plans are underway for a new dedicated page on the school website setting out more details about equality, inclusion and diversity at LEH.
