Early years experiences shape children’s lives and dictate their future. How can we shape our early years services to ensure all children, from all backgrounds, thrive?

Liz Pemberton is the award-winning Director of The Black Nursery Manager Ltd, an anti-racist training and consultancy that provides tailored support to local authorities, early years organisations, teachers and practitioners to promote anti-racist practice. She joined Nesta's Louise Bazalgette on 5 April to talk about her extensive experience working in early years, the importance of community-based, anti-racist and inclusive practices and what she anticipates for the future of early years services.

Liz is passionate about promoting inclusivity in the early years education sector, with first hand experience witnessing the effects of systematic inequality in education and expert knowledge of the ways that race, culture and ethnicity should be considered in this practice.
