Edified Supports Lead5050
Gender equity within senior management is vital for all organisations, especially in education. Education providers are role models at the most critical stages of young people’s development. That's why we’re determined to help Lead5050 in Australia and New Zealand to support more women to achieve senior roles within the education sector.
Lead5050 is a social enterprise founded in 2017 focused on assisting individuals and organizations close the gender leadership gap, especially within the education sector.
The Lead5050 founders, Ella Tyler, Maria Castro and Leanne Linacre, say they are thrilled to partner with Edified, who are not only committed to advancing gender equality in their own organization but who will also advocate for Lead5050 in Australia and New-Zealand. “We already have a large number of members living in the Asia-Pacific region, members as individuals or as employees of international organizations”, founder Maria Castro says, “but the impact of bringing on organizations and their teams headquartered in Australia and New Zealand will be huge. We will be able to support those organizations directly, offering workshops and events with their realities in mind”.
The partnership, born in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, could not be timed better as Lead5050 is creating numerous new resources aimed at supporting furloughed mid-career international educators who may be finding their careers disrupted and needing to explore new directions.
