I thought it would be useful for the Social Justice Leadership group to be aware that a large European network I’m part of is doing research on the theme of leadership and equity. It’s the EU funded European Policy Network on School Leadership which is funded for a 4 year period (2011-2014). The concern of the network is school leadership and at the conclusion of its first year it decided to focus on the theme of leadership and equity. Research, involving policy makers and shapers, should be taking place soon in the UK and other countries. There is clearly overlap with the Social Justice Leadership group. For example, I am doing some scoping work with UK colleagues on leadership and equity as grounding for the research.
