Break the Cycle Conference 2022
We are delighted to share that we are hosting another Break the Cycle conference this March! The theme of this year's event will be "We shall overcome; Striving for racial equality and justice in and through education."
Free online conference
Saturday March 12th 2022
10am - 1pm
“We Shall Overcome” became the anthem of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s, offering solidarity, courage, comfort, and hope to anti-racism campaigners as they confronted apathy, prejudice and hate in the battle for greater racial justice.
Sixty years on that struggle continues. How do we take the next steps towards genuine racial equality?
Throughout this conference we will be exploring how together we can:
- De-colonise the school curriculum
- Recruit an ethnically diverse staff team
- Create safe employment structures
- Develop multicultural school leadership
- Embed an anti-racist organisational culture
- Become Break the Cycle champions
Our keynote speakers include:
Baroness Valerie Amos, Master of University College, Oxford. Valerie is the first female Master of University College, Oxford, and the first black head of any Oxford college.
Lord Michael Hastings, Chair of SOAS, University of London. Michael began his career as a teacher, worked across government on policies to build racial equality and served for nine years with the Commission for Racial Equality.
