#WomenEd Jersey: Leading with courage #EmbraceEquity #IWD2023


Join #WomenEd Jersey for our annual leadmeet with a focus on how we can #EmbraceEquity as leaders and celebrate International Women's Day


Full Description

This International Women's Day join WomenEd Jersey to celebrate and #EmbraceEquity as future and current leaders.

Our focus "Leading with Courage" recognises the strength we have seen demonstrated by female leaders over the past two years- years which have seen women experiencing greater negative effects than men, particularly in relation to juggling childcare/domestic work and paid work (McKinsey & Co., 2020). We will celebrate the contribution of all women in education and discuss how we can embrace equity as leaders.

This event will take place at Highlands Academy and is charged nominally in order to encourage attendance. Please do not book a ticket if you cannot make it, as we will be ordering food for the event. All funds raised will go towards the DEC Turkey/Syria earthquake appeal(https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/turkey-syria-earthquake-appeal). Canapes and a welcome drink will be provided by the amazing team at Highlands Academy.

A huge thanks to Jo Terry-Marchant for supporting this event and providing a venue

6.00pm: A short update from Maggie Eldridge-Mortzek on the local story of the gender pay gap. The last report indicated that education had the biggest pay gap in GOJ of around 20%. Is this still the case?

This will be an annual award offered each year on our IWD event.
