NAHT Leaders for Race Equality Network

NAHT’s Leaders for Race Equality Network is an informal group for our Black, Asian and minority ethnic members. The network is led by members, for members.

The network helps to amplify the voices of our Black, Asian and minority ethnic members, as well as providing support, information and networking opportunities. Members of the network also have the opportunity to participate in the wider work of NAHT this includes engaging with our policy discussions with government, representing NAHT at campaigning events and feeding into discussions and decision-making with other sectors in the union, such as the Diversity and Inclusion group (DiG).

Facilitated by NAHT, the network meets online every half term, with the option to engage in a busy WhatsApp group that's used regularly by many of the network members.

What do members of the network say about it?

"To realise that our difficulties, confusions or conflicts we all face are shared; that's been really supportive."

"Put simply: I love the group - it's the first group where I've felt I really belong."

Network projects

  • NAHT anti-racism statement
    Following a resolution at NAHT’s annual conference in 2021, NAHT has developed an ‘anti-racism’ statement, outlining its overarching position and work to help improve racial equality in education. In developing this statement, NAHT engaged extensively with the LRE network to gather feedback, suggestions and thoughts on what should be considered, recognised and included. Read the full statement
