Where Are All the Women in Educational Leadership?

Over seventy percent of the education workforce consists of women, yet the number of women in leadership positions falls far short of that statistic. Despite a preponderance of inspiring women in education, we do not hear about them nearly as often as we should because the pulpit seems to be dominated by men. Women in education influence everyone in the field through their research, opinions and experiences, and have helped fight bad reform, create more innovative practices in the classroom, and unify voices around the country if not the world. This panel will explore the explore the gender imbalance in educational leadership and what we can all to do address it.
