Aspiring Female Leaders in Education – Addressing the Barriers with Dr Kathryn Corbett, Rachel O’Connor & Ciara McGuane
50% of female teachers would consider leadership in education. (Rahoo Survey. March 2021) Yet, according to DES statistics, only 1 in 15 female teachers are principals.
This unique workshop outlines why it is important that women progress to leadership, the barriers that exist including imposter syndrome, family, confidence and fear of not being good enough and we explore strategies to overcome these barriers. We undertake practical activities and consult with experienced female leaders in this workshop.
