Tuesday 12 November, 2–3pm

For those that can't attend on the day, we will send out a private viewing link to the recorded session.

As children are developing their sense of self and beginning to understand the people in the communities around them and in the wider world, it is our job to help them to do this positively. We need to acknowledge that the wider structural and systemic effects of racism impact children of the global majority disproportionately. This talk will highlight the importance of embedding an anti-racist approach throughout all elements of early years practice and why children need to see themselves reflected in the books that they see and have read to them.


This webinar is aimed at anyone involved with young children, either professionals or parents.


Liz Pemberton (she/her) is the Director of The Black Nursery Manager Ltd, a training and consultancy company which focuses on anti-racist practice within Early Years. With 18 years in the education sector, Liz’s roles have included Secondary School Teacher (QTS), public speaker and, up until 2020, Nursery Manager, allowing her to teach, manage, support and educate Early Years students, practitioners and professionals in a variety of forums.

Liz’s mission is to continue to promote inclusive practice in the Early Years sector, with a particular focus on how race, culture and ethnicity should be considered in this practice. Liz has developed a fantastic network of likeminded practitioners and professionals by sharing her expertise about why anti-racist pedagogy must be a thread that runs throughout early years practice.  With bespoke CPD that she has developed and delivered to a range of clients including whole Early Years departments at universities to local mother and toddler groups, Liz wants to help the adults who care for and educate children under 5 to deepen their knowledge about anti-racism as a series of ongoing, conscious and intentional actions.

Liz’s most recent accolades include being nominated as a finalist for trainer of the year for the 2022 Nursery World Awards, recognised by the Black Cultural Archives as one of their 2022 40x40 Future Leaders, winner of the 2022 Guardian Angel award at the Glomama Awards and in 2021 securing her place as the winner of the Community Unsung She-ro award at the Multicultural Business and Community Champion Awards (MBCC).
