Text Overview

Facilitated by the @WomenEdNL national leaders, this session in the week of International Women's Day will explore the new @WomenEd book (publishing February 2018).    Liz Free is the author of the 'International Perspectives' chapter of the book which includes contributions from #WomenEd countries throughout the world, as well as a chapter case study from the Netherlands @WomenEdNL team.

 

Developing leadership capacity for the future global need is the greatest challenge we face. Globally, the education profession is dominated by women (OECD 2013). Over two thirds are women and yet women in education leadership account for less than half of school leadership. This demonstrates a significant global gender disparity from women in teaching to women in education leadership. So… what does this mean and why is it important to increase gender representation from the teaching profession into education leadership?

 

 Apart from the substantial political, social and moral imperative for gender equality, we quite simply cannot meet the future and expected demand for education without harnessing the potential for education leadership from within the education workforce. Current estimates indicate that roughly 83 million people are being added to the world’s population every year. This challenges the fundamental principles behind education entitlement and the economic potential that is predicated on educated societies. Do we have the education leadership capacity in place to respond to these increasing needs?

 

This #LeadershipLounge session will explore some of the challenges faced by our teachers, and our school leaders. It will take a snapshot view of the global landscape with Liz Free, chapter author of the ‘International Perspectives’ chapter in the new Womened book '10% Braver: Inspiring Women to Lead Education' supported by Co-Leader @WomenEdNL, Sue Aspinall. The evidence based session will provide provocation for dialogue with and between teachers, leaders and researchers leading to recommendations that we will then share with the global #WomenEd Community of over 25,000 people. How will we tackle the education leadership gender divide global epidemic to ensure we utilise the full potential of the profession in ensuring leadership capacity for the growing world population?
