Inspiration and Insight
During the summit, participants will hear from a number of inspirational education sector speakers about their leadership/career journeys and the key elements that have contributed to their success. Armed with this valuable insight, participants will identify their own unique gifts and talents and begin to create their personal brand and message.
Leadership and the Imposter Syndrome
The Imposter Syndrome is loosely defined as doubting your abilities and feeling like a fraud. It disproportionately affects high-achieving people, who find it difficult to accept their accomplishments. For many, feeling like an outsider isn’t an illusion — it’s actually the result of systemic bias and exclusion. The impact of systemic racism, ableism, classism, homophobia, xenophobia, and other biases were absent when the concept of Imposter Syndrome was developed, and our understandings about it are now more sophisticated.
Unsupported, Overlooked and Exhausted
What is the current state of play in Australia’s schools? This Development Session will explore some frameworks that will help us understand this challenging moment in time. We will then present some recent research by Women & Leadership Australia in partnership with NESLI, which highlights the gender discrimination and systemic barriers many women in schools are still facing. Armed with these insights and shared experiences, we will identify practical strategies to help you improve your wellbeing, support your colleagues, and achieve your goals.
