Over the last year, the EIS has continued our long-standing commitment to and work for equality in the workplace and in education, working with members who are underrepresented in the profession and the union – and championing the advancement of equality for those who continue to face discrimination and marginalisation in our society.

The pandemic has not affected us equally, and the consequences are yet to be fully revealed in the year to come. We must stand in solidarity with one another as we continue to demand a just recovery that places equality at the centre.

Here is a summary of our work in the last year, and some of our plans for the new session. For more information about joining one of the informal EIS member networks for disabled members, BAME members or LGBT+ members, please contact: equality@eis.org.uk
