Equitable Leadership for Teachers

Policy 1.14 Women in Educational Leadership

Educational leaders are individuals who perform, or aspire to perform, formal leadership roles, responsibilities, and duties within the education sector, access to which is not limited by gender, race or class.

Equitable leadership can be understood in two ways: leading with an equitable mindset and equitable opportunities for leadership. Leading with an equitable mindset is being self-aware of one’s own biases and privileges that may impact one’s decision making to ensure that all students and staff have choice, opportunity and access. Equitable opportunities for leadership are about reducing or eliminating systemic barriers and providing supports in order to overcome them.
