Long Island NYSAWA Chapter - Strength of Gender Equity: The Path to Leadership
March 21, 2019 / 4:00 - 7:00 pm
Western Suffolk BOCES, 31 Lee Avenue, Wheatley Heights
Did you hear the statistic that men will apply for a job when they meet 60% of the qualifications, but women usually only apply if they meet 100% of the qualifications? As one Forbes article stated, "Men are confident about their ability (to fulfill the role) at 60%, but women don't feel confident until they've checked off each item on the list." What does it take to cultivate the confidence in women for leadership roles? The path to leadership is often different for each person. Join us as we hear from current, successful women administrators and hear about each unique path to leadership.
