Investing in Diversity: Changing the Face (and the Heart) of Educational Leadership
Campbell-Stephens, Rosemary
School Leadership & Management, v29 n3 p321-331 Jul 2009
This article is prefaced on the proposition that the call for more leaders from diverse backgrounds should be accompanied by the creation of a professional space for those leaders to lead joyously, be authentic as well as effective and influence leadership practice. The Investing in Diversity programme provides an opportunity for Black and global majority aspiring leaders to reflect on who they are and what they bring to leadership. It is hoped that the presence of a more representative workforce and leadership in schools will make a difference, particularly to those communities that have traditionally been failed by the system. Such aspirations will never be realised unless we have leadership preparation programmes that are focussed on producing leaders who have the pursuit of equity and social justice as a central priority. It argues that changing the face of leadership is not enough.
