The Sidecar Summit: Bringing Women in Leadership to Life

The first Sidecar Summit, a gathering of adventurous women leaders in preK-12 education, took place in the mountain town of Red Lodge, Montana. The mission: to acknowledge the challenges of leading-while-female in a school setting – challenges brutally laid bare by COVID; recognize that the leadership landscape is at an inflection point for change; and brainstorm how this landscape can be ‘womanized’ so that school leaders (of all genders), their teams, and the school communities they serve can truly thrive.

The State of World’s Children 2021 – From: UNICEF

The COVID-19 pandemic has raised concerns about the mental health of a generation of children. But the pandemic may represent the tip of a mental health iceberg – an iceberg we have ignored for far too long.
