If you are a leader a decision maker mover and or shaker take note of what NEU reports ( as f we didn't know this already) I most certainly can vouch for this. I will never forget how my white non British European mother used to tell me "us foreigners (she included all people of colour and white of non British descent) ..we have to be best at what we do better than all the rest to achieve equality". I used to think this was an exaggeration but now approaching retirement and having seen so many cases of unfair treatment, capability and simply being overlooked for promotion I have to agree with her even now as I approach my 6th decade yes inequality is alive and kicking. It might be dressed down a little , it might be not as explicit but boy o boy is it still there !. Take my lovely department ..I love my colleagues I really do every single one of them I bear no grudge whatsoever BUT as a member of 30 years experience ( I have seen a lot ) I can tell you that if you are black, female and non British the chances of you being on capability , warned and on a lower teaching scale are far higher than that for a young white British male who will have a far higher chance of promotion regardless of experience or ability. So I could argue that my mother was wrong (even if one works hard one might never attain equality). I hope we do move closer to equality and hope that one day there will be significant changes.
