    The international education career path can be a roller coaster of great highs and rewards, and dangerous lows of stress and burnout. Women can have a tendency to push through the challenging times at serious personal cost to their wellbeing. Navigating our own leadership path in an authentic way, can not only empower ourselves but inspire those around us.

    Join Hayley for an open hearted conversation on how to lead with authenticity and learn how to prioritise your wellbeing and others around you. Come prepared to reflect and share your own insights.

    We know that careers tend to occur serendipitously. In the last six months, we have seen a significant change in the world of work, especially in international education. So how can we engage with planned happenstance; that is constructing careers through opportunities? How can we make a plan when it feels so hard to make any plans, or if we have never really planned our career paths?
