Our Core Team are a group of individuals who have day-to-day responsibility for planning and managing the Initiative's events and strategies. The core team includes Maame Atuah (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama), Mumba Dodwell (Alumna of Arts University Bournemouth), and Steven Kavuma (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama).
Our advisory board is made up of artistic directors, directors, actors, researchers, creatives and theatre experts who provide advice and support for The Diversity School Initiative. The board acts as a single body to guarantee that we have a clear strategy and set of goals that are in line with our vision. Members of the board provide the Initiative with knowledge, understanding and strategic thinking of the industry or management of the Initiative. We meet with our board once every three months to update them on what we've done, what we're planning to do and how we're going to do it.
Members on our board are: Tobi Kyeremateng (Cultural Producer and Founder of Black Ticket Project), Vicky Featherstone (Artistic Director at Royal Court Theatre), Pamela Jikiemi (Lecturer), Lewis Kupperblatt (Finance Officer at Royal Court Theatre), Steve Medlin (Senior Wac Arts Coordinator/Head of Drama), Gbolahan Obisesan (Director / Writer ) and Dr. Jami Rogers (Honorary Fellow and Research Assistant, Multicultural Shakespeare).
