Graham Andre: No More Boys and Girls: Can Our Kids Go Gender Free
Innovative primary school teacher Graham Andre, who appeared as part of BAFTA nominated BBC2 documentary ‘No More Boys and Girls: Can Our Kids Go Gender Free’ will deliver the next Be Inspired! Lecture Tuesday 19th February.
Graham has over 20 years’ experience in the education sector and has been a longtime supporter of gender neutrality in teaching. Graham and his class from the Isle of Wight took part in the BBC documentary last year which investigated whether a gender neutral classroom environment could break down societal gender stereotypes amongst the children, transform their views of themselves and transform their future ambitions.
Since taking part in the documentary, Graham has become a spokesperson for gender neutral teaching, speaking on national television and delivering talks on its impact around the UK. He now sits on the steering group of the Gender Equality Charter working with schools, businesses and families to challenge gender inequality.
Grahams talk will address questions such as how gender stereotypes impact on our children as well as looking at children’s experiences of gender from birth and what we can do to minimise negative impacts. Graham will also share practical tips and explore the importance of male role models in early years teaching as well as how we can recruit and retain.
