Opening Doors for Women in Leadership
As female leaders, do we have the will and the courage to ensure that our actions reflect our stated values and belief systems within the educational system?
This one-day workshop will provide a forum to delve into the unintentional practices that marginalize women in leadership, and the female staff/students we are privileged to serve. The presentation will pull together practices related to contextual factors of diversity, equity, access and inclusion that relate specifically to a female leader’s primary role.
Learn about the journey of one leader's commitment and ability as the first woman superintendent in a large district to ensure equity, access and inclusion for all members of the school and district communities. The presentation will focus on the unique qualities, challenges and abilities that women leaders possess to create and lead a culture that opens doors for all.
- Participants will have a greater understanding of practices that open doors for all students through the lens of female leadership.
- Participants will build on and expand equity practices for females within our own schools and districts.
- Participants will clearly understand the relationship of values and action to the tools of a culturally proficient female leader.
