8:30 a.m. - From Confident Girls to Competent Women: New Research & Insights for School Leaders with Lisa Hinkelman
There has been a great deal of attention paid to the ‘confidence gap’ in women – the idea that women are much more reluctant than their equivalent male counterparts to take a risk, ask for a raise or seek a promotion. How does this lack of confidence impact women’s personal and professional development on an individual, group, and systemic basis, and when do these — as well as other challenges with confidence, relationships, body image and pressure — begin for females?
Presenting original research with nearly 11,000 girls across the country, Dr. Lisa Hinkelman will share revealing insights from the recent report, ‘The Girls’ Index’ to illuminate the challenges that face girls during middle and high school. She will discuss how these early experiences impact our perceptions of our abilities and opportunities as well as our personal relationships and professional attainment. Concrete strategies for effective work with female students, and adult women, will be provided.

10:00 - Break

10:15 - Leadership Panel moderated by Sara Paider, NCSA Vice Chair
In this powerful conversation,  inspiring women leaders in education from across the state of Nebraska will discuss their experiences and dive into the impact that female leaders can have on their communities as well as the affect that leadership roles can have on the women who hold them. 

11:30 - Event Concludes
