Mini-Panel Discussion: Respecting Different

The mini-panel discussion: Respecting Difference, was an opportunity for panel members to share recent research findings and provided delegates with the chance to explore what some might consider the more sensitive or more challenging areas around promoting race equality, community cohesion and well-being in schools.

Each panel member had 15 minutes to present their research perspective and raise what they considered the relevance and importance of these topics in taking forward the duties placed on schools on race equality, community cohesion and well-being.

Contributors to this panel included: Professor Heidi Safia Mirza, CRESJ, Institute of Education, University of London; Dr. Rob Berkeley, Runnymede Trust; Professor Lynne Davis, Birmingham University; and Professor Robert Cassen, London School of Economics

The session was chaired by Sally Tomlinson, Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Education, University of Oxford
