Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Schools

 

Bringing diversity, equity and inclusion into everyday practice

 

Khuthaza aims to bring diversity, equity and inclusion into everyday practice in the education sector with the goal of contributing toward a more cohesive society, free of racism and prejudice, where both human diversity and our interconnectedness are valued. Do you wish you could play a greater role in creating this vision of society?

 

We encourage a positive, proactive approach to enhancing school cultures and informing everyday practice. We aim to support educators and school communities through strategy and practice-based principles, resources, and related coaching. We endeavour to help you play your part in building this vision of the future!

Recognising, respecting and valuing that each
individual is unique. Dimensions of diversity
include but are not limited to: race, ethnicity,
language, culture, gender, gender identity, sexual
orientation, socio-economic status, educational
background, geographic location,
marital/relationship status, parental status,
family structure, age, physical abilities,
personality characteristics, career path, religious
beliefs, political beliefs and more.
An approach that recognises that advantages
and disadvantages exist, and that as a result, we
don’t all start from the same place. Equity is a
process that begins by acknowledging that
unequal starting place and continues to correct
and address the imbalance. Equity encompasses
a wide variety of educational models,
programmes, and strategies that may be
considered fair, but not necessarily equal. It’s
often differentiated from equality by seeing
equity as the process and equality as the
intended outcome.
An attitude and approach that embraces human
diversity and individual differences and promotes a
sense of belonging for all. Inclusion requires
involvement and empowerment where the inherent
worth and dignity of all people are recognised.

Coaching

 

Encouraging change, maximising potential

 

Do you crave personal and professional growth? Do you aspire to dream, grow, do, experience and be more? Coaching is a partnership aimed at helping you identify and work toward your potential. Coaching can be valuable in developing greater self-awareness and provides you with a process through which you can identify your strengths, explore meaning, set goals, develop skills, challenge yourself, and make changes aimed at living a more fulfilling life.

 

Coaching is aspirational and future focused. Through coaching, we aim to work with clients who are interested in living toward their own unique potential in all aspects of life including business, career, leadership, contribution to society, relationships, and personal wellness. Identify and use your strengths to optimise all aspects of your life and flourish. 

 

We each have the power to create positive change within ourselves and in the world!

As a Director of Khuthaza, the non profit, I’ve worked with Liz for many years. She’s shown creativity, tenacity, and commitment to what she does. It’s inspiring to work with her and I’m confident that she’ll make a positive impact through these new endeavours. Liz was instrumental in developing training programmes for women in construction and gaining the support of the industry. Many women changed their careers and businesses for the better thanks to these programmes.

Liz and I worked together for about 15 years and remain close friends. She’s a friendly, humble and loyal person. She’s truly committed to making a difference and walks the talk. She’s trustworthy and easy to work with but she cares about what she does so she inspires those around her to commit themselves to go further.

Cindy Shai – Partner from the beginning in Khuthaza / Women for Housing

Khuthaza (the NPC) provided the kind of practical support and encouragement I and others needed as we were beginning our construction related careers and businesses. I know Liz will bring that same energy and spirit into coaching and work with schools. As a parent, she’s influenced me to look at my children’s schools to see where diversity and inclusion are evident and where further change needs to take place.

Elizabeth is very passionate about every endeavor she undertakes. She is a rigorous thinker and a methodical researcher who introduces new and brilliant insights with every interaction.

Amina Dockrat – Communications Specialist

Elizabeth and I have been friends and colleagues for over 20 years. She’s successfully worked with a wide range of people, bringing them on board to support women’s involvement in housing and construction. I know she’s put a lot of time into developing her skills and knowledge to play a new role in coaching and working with schools to help create a brighter future for our country.
