PRIDE

About

NASUWT North East is proud to support Pride every year. Supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) teachers, the NASUWT is at the forefront of formulating policy on all equality issues relevant to teachers in the workplace and education in general. Moreover, the National Union has developed a range of policies and initiatives to enable schools/colleges to progress towards the goal of equality for all. The NASUWT holds an annual Consultation Conference for LGBTI teachers to assist the Union in formulating policy on relevant issues and to inform its work and future campaigns. The NASUWT also runs specialist professional seminars and training events for LGBTI members and supports a number of LGBTI campaigns and initiatives, including sponsoring UK Black Pride.

"When women aren't present, we must ask: "If not, why not?" When women are discriminated against, we must call out poor practice.When the treatment of women is not equitable, we must take action and we must do this each time, every time."

International Women's Day 2024 campaign theme: "Invest in women: Accelerate progress."

For International Women's Day 2024 and beyond, let's Inspire Inclusion.

When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world.

And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment.

The aim of the IWD 2024 #InspireInclusion campaign is to collectively forge a more inclusive world for women.

"What does inspiring inclusion mean to you?"

Defining equity and equality.png

Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities.

 

Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.
