Event description

Description

The first Be Her Lead Conference aims to open up discussion about gender and education, and showcase fun and practical ways to support teenage girls. Join us for a day of active workshops, panel discussions and networking.

With the theme 'Resilience and Aspirations' as our starting point, we will bring together a range of voices, from teachers and educators, to other organisations tackling gender inequality, to women who want to increase access and representation in their industries and careers. We aim to be intersectional in our approach and create a safe space to discuss how gender relates to other inequalities in an educational context. We warmly welcome male allies and those outside of education who wish to attend.

Currently our programme includes...

  • Keynote speeches from renowned psychoanalyst, feminist activist and author of Fat Is A Feminist Issue Susie Orbach, and Period Poverty campaigner, feminist activist and author Laura Coryton

  • Talks and workshops from organisations like Sexplain, the London Feminist Library, The Girls Network, You Be You, Bold Voices, and more

  • Panel discussions and workshops from those working in activism and research, from female leaders in education, and from some of our pilot participants (teachers and students)

  • Opportunities to network and find out more about how to get involved in our programme either by applying as a teacher, or visiting a school as one of our role models if you work outside teaching

...more speakers and workshops to be announced soon!


If you would be interested in running a workshop or session or volunteering at our conference (in return for a free ticket), or if you have any other questions, please get in touch by emailing hello@beherlead.com. If you're a woman in teaching interested in applying for the Be Her Lead programme, register interest here or chat to one of our team members at the conference.

We would like to thank West London Free School, one of our pilot participating schools, for generously hosting us. All proceeds from ticket sales will go towards covering the costs of the event and supporting our programme in schools.
