Race [in]to Leadership: Winners, Losers and Bystanders

Race and Leadership Conference - Free to Attend

Date: Thursday 18th February 2016
Time: 10:45am - 3:00pm
Venue: IoE, UCL

This inaugural session of the Race and Leadership BELMAS Research Interest Group aims to open debate and stimulate discussion of the ways in which ‘race’ is understood and deployed in the theory and practice of educational leadership. As such, it examines ‘race’ within and beyond the experiences of minoritised groups and incorporates ‘race’ as a social construct that applies to all. Race then, is used as a prism through which to explore and interrogate issues such as; the gaze through which educational leadership research is constructed; monocultural leadership in multi-ethnic education spaces; access to and outcomes for those who participate in bespoke leadership programmes; the impact and interplay of policy on educational leadership theory and practice. The session hopes to bring together academics, postgraduate students and practitioners and those with an interest in race and leadership in a stimulating and topical debate.

The session would be of interest to: school leaders, postgraduate researchers, academics and policy makers.

Speakers include Marianne Coleman and Jennifer Moses
