Future Smart Parent Podcast
Diversity in Schools - a conversation for white parents
with Buhle Dlamini and Graeme Codrington
In today’s episode, I talked with my colleagues, and fathers themselves, Buhle Dlamini, global speaker and expert on why diversity and inclusion are essential in business, and Graeme Codrington, an expert on the Future of Work and author of the book “Future Proof Your Child”
For this episode, we turned the focus away from business and onto our children. We discussed the importance of diversity and inclusion in schools and our education system.
Learning about diversity, and having it visibly represented in our schools is extremely important, especially for white children where previous generations have been the perpetrators of racism, colonialism and discrimination against People of Colour.
We discuss the fact that racism is a system that is still operational, despite the fact that we are living 30 years post-apartheid. And in understanding this key fact we hope to engage in conversations with parents about the damaging effects of racism and how we might attempt to solve these problems for our children, and for the future of our country.
While this is a difficult discussion, it is absolutely one that we need to be having. Diversity is at the root of resilience, empathy and innovation and should be an ideal that we are pushing for.
Let us stay committed to this ideal, and work every day towards antiracism and inclusion on all levels.
