On 21 May 2022, we welcomed more than 300 Black  members and more than 20 different presenters and speakers to the first in-person Black Teachers’ Consultation Conference for two years.
The packed programme included three panel sessions with internal and external speakers, six workshop sessions and four sound bites sessions.
There were also opportunities to meet and network with both old and new friends and colleagues.
The event was a huge success, with almost 90% of delegates rating the event either good or excellent.
Some inspirational quotes from members
‘Feeling empowered as a Black teacher and knowing that I am not alone on this journey of equality.’
‘After the conference, I can honestly say that I am proud to be a member of the NASUWT because I feel supported and I have this peaceful sense of belonging.’
‘Collectively meeting other teachers who experience discrimination in their current roles and looking to move forward with solutions. The fact that this is a safe place for us. I can use the information taken from the Conference and look to start making changes within my current school.’
The NASUWT uses the term Black in a political and inclusive sense to describe those who self-identify as African, Caribbean and Asian identities and those with a common and direct history of racism, racist oppression and diminished opportunities in today’s society. This Consultation Conference aims to enable members to engage with the key issues and challenges facing the Union, share experiences, meet other members and shape the future of the Union.
