Best DEIJ practice seeks justice for all marginalised groups and their intersecting identities, and is focused on adapting to their differences rather than expecting them to bend to the hegemony of our existing norms.
This practical workshop will offer a powerful model for a DEIJ audit of our schools, which consists of the collaborative search for “spikes” within our schools and the cocreation of “curb cuts” that can help remove them.
Matthew approaches this first through his own, personal experience of disability, but the journey on which delegates will embark is applicable to every characteristic currently inhabiting the margins of our school communities.
Ultimately, the workshop addresses the concept of “wellbeing equity”, and requires both the humility and curiosity to challenge and interrogate the “cow paths” we have trodden for too long.
