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.

Schools in Some Countries Have Been Shuttered for 18 Months Straight

Students across much of the world are trading in Zoom windows for chalkboards, in a global moment of hope and apprehension. In some places, including parts of the United States, many school doors shut for a year and a half have swung open, even amid resurgent coronavirus outbreaks. In five countries — Bangladesh, Kuwait, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela — in-person schooling was paused nationally for 18 months. In the Philippines and Venezuela, there’s no end in sight.

The Swiss Cheese Model of Pandemic Defense

It’s not edible, but it can save lives. The virologist Ian Mackay explains how.

The metaphor is easy enough to grasp: Multiple layers of protection, imagined as cheese slices, block the spread of the new coronavirus. No one layer is perfect; each has holes, and when the holes align, the risk of infection increases. But several layers combined significantly reduce the overall risk. Vaccination will add one more protective layer.
