Women represent an overwhelming majority of the education workforce, yet they are significantly underrepresented in senior leadership positions. Across the education sector, from primary and secondary schools to colleges and universities, women are not making senior leadership positions in adequate numbers. Women in Education seeks to provide current and future leaders with the skills needed to correct this imbalance.

The unique Women in Education conference explores the role of women in education leadership and offers practical advice and coaching on how to further develop your career in times of change. We will discuss together how we can manage the challenges of modern leadership and help ensure we don't lose momentum in recognising and rewarding female leaders across the education sector.

Due to current uncertainty surrounding live events and restrictions around social distancing, this event will now take place online. The content for the day exactly mirrors that of the live event, and there will be plenty of time built into the day for Q&A and interaction with speakers and fellow delegates. Video recordings of each session will also be made available to delegates following the event. 

The agenda can be found online here.
