Girls on becoming the leaders of the future
Speakers: Dr Michele Paule and Dr Hannah Yelin, with guest panellists Shaista Aziz, Jane Brady, Laura Coryton, Isabel Adomakoh Young
This event presents findings from the ‘Girls, Leadership, and Women in the Public Eye’ project. It is aimed at those engaged in work with and for girls – in education, in youth work, in advocacy and activism, and in media commissioning/production - and may also be of interest to fellow scholars
It offers insights into girls’ understanding of leadership in relation to prominent women, to media representations, and to their own lives.
As well as the project findings, it features girls themselves in conversation with an exciting panel of women leaders.
The project was supported by funding from the Gender and Education Association.
