Actions and Detail Panel
Using the power of research to support career development and progression.
Sat 20 May 2017, 09:14 – 16:00 BST
Our vision is to empower, develop and connect current and future leaders to redress the gender inequalities in leadership across all sectors of education. We will promote potential, build authentic leadership and celebrate achievements of women leaders to inspire future generations. We believe that positive challenges come from being in a like-minded regional network.
The aim of our network is to develop a visible network to provide support, professional development and opportunities to connect with likeminded women leaders. We want a network that is able to design new ways of working, at a systemic and individual level, in order to unlock potential talent and maximise existing talent. A network that will link with subregional, regional, national and global women’s networks for the advancement of women everywhere.
