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 in terms 2, 3, and 4. The meetings  allow for networking from 4.15pm to 5.15pm with refreshments provided followed by a speaker from 5.15pm to around 5.45pm. We aim to conclude the meeting by 6.00pm. 

We communicate by email and firm up details around parking and maps to help you get to where we are assembling. We welcome everyone to the network.

Networking Meeting 1- At this first network meeting of 2019, we are launching the Aspiring Women Leaders Mentoring Network. For those who have previously registered to be involved we will send the contact details of your mentor/mentee and mentoring guidelines on Tuesday 7 May, 2019 by email. There will also be the opportunity at this Network Gathering to register to be a part of the mentoring program. Our guest speaker at this event will be Susan Shaw, who is a recently retired, long serving Principal in the Independent sector. Sue will present her leadership journey reflecting the importance that having a mentor and mentoring others has played in her career. Please join us at this exciting event.

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)
