One of a Few…Bringing Women in Leadership Together

As women attending District, League, County and Statewide leadership meetings we are, frequently one of the few, if not the only, females in the room. There are unique challenges for women leading in today’s complex educational environment.

This one-day conference on November 15 will provide the opportunity for female building and central office leaders to network, build skill sets, and lead forward. Although the number of female leaders in education has seen a slight increase at the building-level, the percentage remains disproportionate in secondary schools and the central office. As the statewide associations for principals and superintendents, we recognize the importance of building leadership capacity to increase the number of women in leadership positions.
