Women in School Leadership: Navigating Pathways to the Superintendency

Women comprise more than 70% of the education workforce, but few occupy the top leadership position in U.S. public school systems. This inspiring video series provides a firsthand account of the leadership journeys of nine women superintendents who have made it to the top job.

  • Learn about their journeys–the successes and challenges and how they overcame them to secure the superintendency.
  • Gain insights, life lessons and practical tips and advice to help you nail the top leadership job.
  • Discover proven strategies to help you break through barriers and navigate pathways to success.

To watch the videos, visit the Women in School Leadership Initiative resources page at www.aasa.org/WomenInSchoolLeadershipResources.aspx.
