WorkPride Panel: LGBTQ+ Inclusion in Education / History

Join us for this panel which will explore the role education has in equipping the LGBTQ+ community, as well as sharing our culture, history, and stories. We'll be joined by educators and D&I specialists to discuss how schools can be more inclusive in their teaching, and what benefits this brings.

    Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations
    University of Westminster
    I am an academic researcher, writer and teacher. My research is situated at the intersection of Feminist International Relations, political sociology and queer theory, focusing on the politics of LGBTQ+ rights and activism. I held a 2018-19 Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship studying 'The Global Politics of Pride: LGBTQ+ Activism, Assimilation and Resistance', and conducted comparative fieldwork across Africa, Asia and North America. My earlier work on white South African conscientious objectors and white anti-apartheid activists explored how militarisation was gendered and how contesting this process was destabilising for the state. I've published a book about this with Manchester Unviersity Press and Wits University Press and a number of articles and chapters. I also co-wrote a book about the lives, identities and attitudes of white British migrants in South Africa. I have an interest in queer sub-cultures and art and have hosted film screenings and discussion events with Andrew Logan and Sue Tilley. In 2022, I co-curated an photography exhibition about Soweto Pride at 54 The Gallery in London. I joined the University of Westminster in September 2015 after having worked as Lecturer at the Open University and Loughborough University. I was an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Post-Doctoral Fellow and Visiting Lecturer at the University of Bristol I have BA (Hons) in History and Politics from the University of Exeter and an MSc with Commendation in International Relations from the University of Bristol. I was awarded a PhD in Politics by Rhodes University, South Africa.

    Ancient History Teacher
    History UnErased
    Engaging communicator with a Boston accent. I convey complex ideas to target audiences in fun and approachable ways. I leverage my years of classroom experience to help founders design learning tools for success. In my current role I'm constantly in motion, driven by a belief that education is society's strongest weapon against injustice. Through teaching, I've developed a wide range of skills: public speaking, writing, creating multimedia content, and evaluating educational technology. Having done this work for several years now, I'm open to new and exciting challenges. Helping my husband open a now-thriving small business less than a year after he attained US citizenship, and only one month before the pandemic hit, has inspired me to think big about what is possible. Entrepreneurship has much in common with the dynamic world of teaching: fast pace, collaborative spirit, and the chance to learn while building. I'm eager to bring my unique set of talents to that space add value through my work. I'm a travel fanatic, especially when ancient archaeological sites are involved. My dream job is roadtrip breakfast blogger - but that's still in my daydreams for now. Two causes that are important to me are mental wellness, and the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals. If you want to know more about me, my work, or how I might be able to help your work, please reach out - I'm eager to collaborate.
