Reconceptualizing Inclusive Leadership to Address Diversity in Schools
Bhowmik, Miron Kumar; Walker, Allan; Bryant, Darren
Multicultural Education Review, v15 n2 p139-156 2023
Through combining a diversity perspective and intersectionality approach, this paper contributes to the conceptualization of inclusive leadership for addressing diversity in schools. Drawing on literature from business and management studies as well as that of educational management and leadership, the paper first theorizes inclusive school leadership and outlines the tenets of inclusive school leaders. It then highlights some of the challenges facing school leaders as they strive to build inclusive schools and practices. The paper then identifies and illustrates the traits, profiles and competencies of inclusive school leaders and explicates a number of promising approaches to leading inclusive schools. It also outlines an agenda to underpin the development of inclusive leadership capabilities and how leaders might nurture positive school cultures which not only respect but celebrate diversity and inclusion. The paper concludes by discussing strategies inclusive school leaders can use to meet the challenges accompanying disruptive times and beyond.
