“When doors are opening, don’t just walk through them – fly. When you are the only ‘different’ person in the room, you not only stand as one, you stand as 10,000 of you.”

In episode seven of the Amplifying Diverse Voices podcast, hosted by Priya Bates (she/her) and Advita Patel (she/her), we were delighted to welcome Olivia Bussey, Head of Quality and Compliance & Ofqual Responsible Officer at NCC Education.

Listen now to learn about Olivia’s incredible tenacious journey, and the ways we can continue to build our confidence and improve representation everywhere, from board rooms to classrooms.

Also discussed: changing the narrative by using different strategies, including engagement with other educators.

Olivia derives her personal strength from reading. How about you? What techniques do you use to derive strength?
