Nic Ponsford

Founder and CEO, Global Equality Collective (GEC)
United Kingdom
After working in education for over 20 years as a teacher, school leader, trainer, and coach, Nic wanted to find an accessible means to make ordinary classrooms extraordinarily inclusive. Nic is passionate about creating a level playing field for everyone in education, but especially those from underserved groups. In 2017, Nic set up the Global Equality Collective (GEC) to address one of the biggest issues in education; diversity and inclusion. The GEC Platform recently won the 'DEI Platform of the Year' Women in IT (UK) where the judges were blown away by the simplicity and success of the DEI technology. The GEC Platform was also runner-up in the Global Edtech Startup Awards 2023 and has been just announced as finalist for BETT 2024 for 'Transformational Impact'. Nic has been recognised as one of Europe's top 50 women in tech through the #InspiringFiftyEurope award, gained a Rising Star Award (Education and Academia). Recently she has listed 'Highly Commended' as a 'Women in Tech Excellence' in the category of 'Role Model of the Year' 2023 by Computing magazine.
