Sameena Choudry is the founder of Equitable Education Ltd. and co-founder of #WomenEd. She set up her own educational consultancy because she feels that being in charge of your own career and destiny is extremely empowering. It has enabled her to utilise the skills she gained in various roles to significantly improve standards of attainment for pupils who were previously under-attaining. These have consisted of teacher, lecturer, ITE tutor, examiner, senior leader, adviser and senior officer roles in three LAs. She is also a trained Ofsted inspector. The common denominator in all these roles has been her desire to work with teachers and senior leaders to improve educational outcomes for pupils with specific needs who, with additional support, can and do achieve highly. She is immensely privileged to have the opportunity to work closely with so many schools to achieve this goal. Sameena feels that much more work needs to be done to improve representation of female colleagues into senior leadership posts across all sectors of education and has a particular interest in ensuring that there is diversity in leadership.
