The last 2 weeks have been #womened-tastic!
Last Saturday, the lovely @awilliams hosted us for a @womenedEM regional event at her stunning school in Leicester - if you want to see creativity and immersive learning in situ you need to visit! The key note from Harriet Minter resonated with us all and I did my first #womened key note, sharing my leadership journey.
Last Sunday, we had our @womenedWM regional leaders orientation day - we do this with each new round of volunteers to align vision and values, it is essential to meet in person and form as a team. We now have an extended team of regional leaders in both the West and the East Mids. We are excited to be planning a calendar of events for 2017-18 to include a Career Development Unconference in January, a Midlands Festival of Leadership in May, plus #leadmeet for International Day of the Girl on 11/0 and International Women's Day on 8/3.
Yesterday, I had the privilege of hosting our first #womened event at Aureus School. People travelled from Kent, Southampton, Wales, Sheffield and Italy to join us. Our 2 fab key notes, Dame Kate Dethridge and @vivg were our book ends to frame a fab day of learning, leading and reflecting. I have received so many lovely comments about the warm, inclusive and relaxed atmosphere of the event, plus lots of compliments about 'glorious Aureus!'
Tired, but happy. Especially happy to see so many #heforshe ambassadors, so many babies and our next generation of girl leaders!
I love being part of a community with a common goal, a shared vision, a collective voice.
