Why do we need the Women Leading in Education Project?

73.8% of all classroom teachers are female, yet only 62% of headteachers are female (School Workforce in England 2015). Diverse teams create better results; the Women Leading in Education project is all about creating diverse leadership teams. After all, what view of leadership do we want our young people to grow up seeing? This is a national project which aims to work at a local level, so come and share your ideas to help shape future events.

Whether you are a headteacher, aspiring middle leader, newly qualified teacher, lecturer or anything in between, you are welcome! Any woman, at any phase in their leadership journey, is welcome. We are cross-phase and cross-sector- the more diverse our network the greater the benefits for all of us! And men are most welcome too- so come along and be a HeForShe ambassador.

Please tell 1 female and 1 male colleague about this event! Why not bring a colleague with you?
