Women in Educational Leadership: A Conversation

January 7, 2021

Join the McDowell Foundation’s virtual Salon Series, Women in Educational Leadership: A Conversation, on January 21, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. to hear and discuss the experiences of women in educational leadership in Saskatchewan. Two female researchers, Amy Orth and Amy Korver from the Prairie Spirit School Division, will share their experiences along with highlights and challenges from nine other female administrators in education. They will identify trends in female leaders, the barriers they face as they enter administration positions, and the impact it has on their school culture.

The researchers will also be joined by guest panelists: Angela Banda, STF Senior Administrative Staff; Samantha Becotte, STF Provincial Executive; and Lori Jeschke, Director, Prairie Spirit School Division to further the discussion and encourage more women to pursue leadership in Saskatchewan.
