We Are In Beta Podcast

Dec 22, 2019

Picking up from the last episode on BAME leadership, 'Critical Mass' featuring Allana Gay, which you should listen to first, we’re talking about what it means to be a good ally to your BAME colleagues, what the purpose is and what it looks like when it’s not easy.

We speak to Patrick Ottley O’Connor - Executive Headteacher, North Liverpool Academy - and Allana Gay again about what they’ve done and would like to see done to promote an equitable education system for people of all backgrounds.

We also hear from Pran Patel, teacher and equity activist, who teaches us about power, the racist-anti racist spectrum and gives his advice about how to be an ally.

While, this episode is about being an ally to your BAME colleagues, the principle can be applied more widely.
