Women in Leadership: Are We There Yet?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will open up an important conversation about women in leadership. A large body of peer reviewed research continuously finds that high-achieving women experience social backlash because of their very success. Specically, the behaviours that created that success violate our expectations about how women are supposed to behave. This session will focus on how senior leaders must navigate the multiple responsibilities and constituencies of their roles. In this session we will identify the unique leadership challenges and opportunities facing women in education today and come to understand when and how gender plays a role in both organizational and personal advancement.
