77% of the teachers in this nation are female, yet only 24% of the superintendents are female. Dr. Trudy Arriaga, Dr. Thelma Meléndez de Santa Ana and Dr. Michele Bowers will facilitate this session to explore the reasons for the compelling and concerning data as we highlight 3 successful female superintendents. How did they secure the position and how did they sustain their leadership roles as superintendents despite the odds? This session will focus on how to overcome the barriers of gender equity at the executive leadership level for aspiring and current executive leaders.
