Full Description

'If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.'

The inspirational words of Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman elected to Congress are at the heart of our 2022 global unconference.

We think women have brought all manner of furniture to the table and yet we are still not represented fully in leadership roles in education, nor are we always part of decision making. Women who are disabled or black or gay may not even get into the room that has the table in it.

So we are asking important questions over a glorious weekend in which you will be inspired, empowered and ready to bring about positive disruption and change.

  • What would you do with your seat at the table?
  • What if women built the table?
  • What if we turn the table over or what if we broke the table? (the table being a metaphor for the system)
  • What would education for ALL truly look like?


Our third global unconference offers our #WomenEd community the opportunity to connect and collaborate across all our 37 networks

Across one weekend and four sessions, we'll explore these questions , dare to be different, own our bravery and advocate for others. Most importantly we will share and agree ways forward to bring about much needed change in education and leadership globally.


Friday 30th September 18.00pm - 20.00pm

Saturday 1st October 10am - 12.30pm

Saturday 1st October 13.30 - 17.00pm

Sunday 2nd October 10.am - 13.00pm.
