LGBT History as part of school education

LGBT History as part of school education

It’s the LGBT History Month in the UK, and we’re discussing the relevance of teaching about it in primary schools. Our Head of Psychology, Caitlin Bethell, talks to Dani Aukett, an LGBT primary school teacher about how she’s been able to bring about some change in the curriculum and embed and usualise talking about the terminology and what it means to be LGBT. She opens up about her own journey of being a lesbian and talks about the importance of early education on inclusion.

What we’re talking about

Johanna launched In Diverse Company in 2019 out of a strong belief that there was a better way to create and measure inclusive cultures.

We set up our events programme to share some truly inspirational stories and provide evidence of the power of inclusion within the workplace, as well as an opportunity for networking, talking through issues and challenges and creating a community for those working along a D&I journey.

We live by our values, and our approach to our own recruitment policy, team and purpose reflects this. We are a tech company driven by a senior team that are experts in people, with one of the only female CEOs of a HR tech platform across the world.

Our Learning Platform, Include™ is the only LXP that combines Learning and Engagement. Include aims to create more inclusive working cultures and is underpinned by social and behavioural psychology principles.
