Racism is real, and it is a reality experienced daily by staff and students of racially diverse heritage in educational institutions in the UK. This presentation will look at education as a site of racism and whiteness. It will also look at the experiences of racially diverse staff and students in educational institutions. It will end by looking at how some leaders are engaging with and trying to tackle racism to improve conditions for both staff and students.
