We should always have three friends in our lives
- one who walks ahead who we look up to and follow; 
one who walks beside us, who is with us every step
of our journey;  and then, who we reach back for
and bring along after we've cleared the way.  
Michelle Obama
The network invites you to come and play all of
these roles.The afternoon network meetings are
for anyone interested in gender equality and
the role of women in educational leadership.
The meetings are held at various member
schools across the metropolitan area each term.
The meetings usually allow for networking
from 4.30pm to 5.00pm with nibbles
and a glass of bubbles followed by
a speaker from 5.00pm to 5.30pm.
Networking Meeting 1 - Guest speaker:  
Open to network members and their invited guests.
‘In addressing this issue, some valuable lessons
about women in leadership can be learned from the
experience of business and other sectors, however,
the unique context in education, of a lack of female
principals in a predominantly female workforce,
require exploration. This needs to be undertaken
urgently, as Australia faces a major challenge in
identifying and developing the next generation of
school leaders, I believe that a strategic and
cohesive national approach is required to meet
that challenge and the women in our teacher
workforce have a crucial role to play.’  
Barbara Watterston (2010, p11)
