In this courageous conversation about gender and leadership, Joyce will share the results of a video survey celebrating women in edtech leadership and pointing to several elephants in the room surrounding that topic. The goal of this interactive session is to provoke both men and women to consider how we might better support/elevate each other.
We will respond to an anthology of video stories from leaders. 
Participants will leave with a better understanding of: 
The need to ensure all students/faculty are safe and welcome at the table 
Building a school culture free of small, but damaging gender biases
Encouraging female leadership
