About this event

Enabling Equity and Liberation in Education: Strategies to remove the ACE of racism

This is the third online quarterly Open Conversation promoted by the London ACEs Hub Racial Justice Workgroup.

Participants will have an opportunity to hear from three inspiring practitioners who are committed to raising awareness of the impacts of the adverse childhood experience (ACE) of racism upon children and young people in educational settings.

We will be able to reflect upon our experiences in education, our perceptions and preconceptions and the ways we relate to one another. The connection between ACEs, racism and the 4 As of education: Attachment, Attendance, Attainment and Affiliation will also be addressed as well as practical trauma-informed and antiracist steps to create positive changes.

There will be plenty of opportunities to interact, develop allyship and learn together during the live webinar.

We look forward to seeing you on the 17th!

Special Guests Bios

Sakhile Mpofu

With a background in Neuroscience and Behavioural Science, Sakhile trained and taught in one of the foremost deprived areas in Birmingham. This experience, at the interface between education and social mobility, motivated Sakhile’s launching of Tipe (Trauma-Informed Practice Environments). Sakhile has fostered over the years a deep appreciation of the significant role several factors have on Children and Young People’s capacity to learn and engage with education institutions. Demonstrating the benefits of this understanding remains an inherent driver of Sakhile’s continued work in London and beyond.

As a specialist, working with the minoritised and socially excluded who have experienced ACEs and trauma, Peaches develops, facilitates and advocates healing centred workshops and programs specific to the needs of the community. In addition, she is a co-founder of Womanhood Academy, a supplementary education provider, which cultivates, promotes and celebrates the development of black girls.
