This week we speak with Helen Richardson (she/her), a brilliant Deputy Headteacher of a large primary school in Nottingham. Helen started working on anti-racism at her school, which later developed into all things diversity, where she was nominated to lead the diversity network for her school’s Trust.
From there, Helen joined the Nottingham City Equality Action Team where she’s working with Directors of Education, Nottingham Citizens and MATs across Nottingham to improve the diversity of the curriculum and recruitment and retention of black and global majority teachers.
In this episode, Helen discusses her experiences of growing up during Section 28, the amazing work she does with diversity and the curriculum... and receiving a 'coming out pot plant'!
We love to hear your feedback, so please rate and review this episode, and you can follow us on Twitter @prideprogress and Helen @DiversityDeputy.
