For our children to have access to and occupy positions of influence and leadership in a variety of roles across all industries.
For our children to be engaged and educated in anti-racist environments
To work in partnership and build capacity with other Black community organisations, in acknowledgment that education sits within and overlaps other issues and systems.
To work in partnership with educational institutions on initiatives which directly impact widened access
To consult educational institutions and provide initiatives that help to guide the progress from non-racist to anti-racist – with a specific anti-blackness remit
To actively create a network among parents and Black independent and grammar school alumni, with a view to actively work on initiatives such as careers advice, mentoring, work experience and professional networking.
In order to work towards our vision, ACEN is actively working on 3 distinct initiatives.
