In Alberta, the gap between the number of women who occupy positions of leadership in both school jurisdictions and the Alberta Teachers Association and the number of women who are members of the teaching profession is significant. A review of the literature and historical documents shows this gap has been surprisingly durable over time. Therefore, in the spring of 2019, the Alberta Teachers' Association launched an online survey to assess what Alberta teachers thought about the experience of teachers with respect to educational leadership and gender. The survey explored whether there is gender-based discrimination experienced by teachers and how these barriers impact a teachers' career progression. In addition, participants were asked to identify what supports teachers identified as being important to helping women enter into positions of educational leadership. This session will provide an overview of the survey and provide comment about how this information might assist the work of the Association and school jurisdictions.
As a result of participating in this session, you will have an opportunity to enhance your awareness of the gendered nature of schools and school divisions to build more inclusive leadership teams.
