Rebbecca Hemmings on Cultural Diversity in the Early Years


Rebecca Hemmings stared working in schools using theatre as a tool for learning of many subjects and then moved on to delivering workshops on identity and culture. Fast forward to 2021, Rebecca now spends most of her time delivering training to organisations on how to manage difficult conversations about race.

Rebecca enjoys her work because it allows her to amplify the voices of the racially marginalised who often get dismissed or their experiences denied.

In this interview, we discuss how racism starts in children, how this may adversely affect their view of the world and, most importantly, what Early Years practitioners and educators can do about this. We also discuss microaggressions, allyship and how to improve the cultural diversity of every setting.
