Hind Mrimou

Hind is recognised as a formidable and passionate educator, who is not willing to accept the inequitable attitudes and behaviour to racial equality.  Born in London of North African heritage, Hind has always been a part of and has worked in diverse settings. In her roles as a Senior Leader, and as a class teacher, Hind has been driven by her belief that every child should have the opportunity to achieve their potential, in spite of the inequalities that exist. As a mother of three children, developing a tool that not only promotes equality and equity but one that also leaves a positive change for the future of her children was an important motivation for this.
