Social Cohesion in Education
Diversity and Inclusion has played some powerful roles in the corporate world, reshaping systems, empowering employees and truly mixing the talent pool with a broader spectrum of fresh minds.
In schools and education, the playing field is very similar. Students and learners, being in sensitive and impressionable ages, are particularly vulnerable to the bias and conditioning from the adults in their lives.
How are staff managing diverse classrooms and school yards? How does the school manage the welfare of the students and the staff sense of belonging and safety? What happens when a learner or staff member experiences unfair treatment?
On top of these considerations, staff themselves require greater tools and processes to help them navigate the work to create a socially cohesive environment.
Performing this work leads towards greater retention rates, higher grade potential and better performance all round.
