Wow what a month?! June has whistled by and so much has happened in schools, in society and in the world. Life has most definitely been more frenetic and turbulent than it has in a while. My thoughts are with everyone as they process their emotional reaction to a number of significant events that have rocked us all. I hope that everyone is investing in their self-care during these difficult times, as we take stock of the world we live in.

Reflections on the Last Month



On June 13th we hosted our 4th #DiverseEd event, this time it was a virtual event. Thank you to the fabulous contributors who each shared their wisdom. We recorded the event and you can view the footage here.

Please do share it far and wide, plus use the 4 sessions (Landscape, Curriculum, Culture and Landscape)  as free Diversity training for your schools. You can also read my blog post on the event.


On June 23rd I participated in the 'Midwives of the Future' appreciative enquiry event facilitated by Charmaine Roche and Professor Rachel Lofthouse. I co-facilitated one of the breakout rooms with Bethan Hindley from the Teacher Development Trust. The reflections, discussions and explorations for the future of education were rich and energising. 


On June 27th I was invited to present at Emma Turner’s annual event for Early Career Teachers. Earlier in the week I had been invited by her group of schools to deliver diversity training to 70 trainee teachers, so I followed this up with a presentation on how to “Live, not Laminate” the value of diversity. See the thread for my talk.

Thought Leadership

I love connecting with people who share my passions, and when I met Isa Buencamino last month I did not know that we would strike up a friendship, and within a month we would be launching a pilot series of a webcast! Join us each Sunday for #FastForwardDiversityInclusion.

We have lined up some brilliant Diversity and Inclusion experts and advocates to interview including Rhodora Palomar-Fresnedi, Elizabeth Wright, Professor Paul Miller and Dr Fran Johnston.

The #DailyWritingChallenge is still going strong and I have blogged every weekday throughout lockdown! My most read blog this month has been on the value of: Boldness.

I have also written a summary of my last  year since being put on Gardening Leave and I have written about Inclusive allyship.


Podcasts are becoming more and more popular at the moment and throughout June I have been interviewed by The Visionaries, Persyou and The Piloted Podcast. Recordings will be added to the website soon.


I was really honoured to support Alison Kriel, Angie Browne, Penny Rabiger and Amy Ferguson with the Collaborative Support for Women event on June 10th. If you want to reflect more on the impact of George Flood’s tragic death on the black community, please do watch this event.

In March, I was due to present at the BERA conference but due to lockdown it was cancelled. The event was flipped to a virtual conference and you can see my input on Leading a Whole School Approach to Mental Health.


I am one month into my training programme with Resilient Leaders Elements to become a coach and a consultant for their various programmes. I am working with them to introduce RLE into schools.

I am honoured that Vision and Values have invited me to become an Associate.

Training Opportunities



I have now facilitated 10 sessions – thank you to everyone who has joined me thus far – the sessions are a joy to host and I love hearing your stories about your relationship with the self-promotion bias. Read this anonymous blog by one of the participants on her journey as a black woman as she finds her voice and shares her story.

Leadership Masterclasses

Listening to the participants of #IamRemarkable about what some of the personal and professional barriers to being promoted are, I have agreed to facilitate a series of leadership masterclasses to address each skill set. You can book to join us here:
