Voice4Equity (V4E), a national organization promoting women and women of color as K–12 school superintendents, and The Superintendent Lab (TSL), a superintendency data and research company, have partnered to debut an AI-driven Education Leadership Analytics platform to promote equity and inclusion in educational leadership through policy, practice, and research. The platform provides K–12 public school districts with research, data, news, and policy affecting them.
Many professional women feel immense pressure to manage their own lives, careers, and family. Research has shown that women today are less happy than they have been over the past 40 years. As daughters, sisters, friends, wives, and mothers, there are many responsibilities to be balanced. Unfortunately, most women fail to keep a good balance for themselves, and keep taking from themselves, without giving anything back.
The phrase “you throw like a girl” has resonated for years among women, encompassing many female career roles, responsibilities, and skills. Dalia Feldheim’s book Dare to Lead like a Girl: How to Survive and Thrive in the Corporate Jungle is a powerful antidote for a workplace culture that views traits such as passion, vulnerability, and empathy as feminine weaknesses. Dalia describes her own personal journey to balance a career of inspiring leadership and emotional bravery without compromising feminine qualities and traits in her life, work, and family. She goes even further to recognize a Harvard study where “feminine traits” such as reflection, management, caring, and relationship building common among women in the workplace were identified as outperforming men.
