Recording: Why Women are Rising to the Top in Education, Mar 8, 2023

The objective of the panel is to explore why entrepreneurial women are rising to the top of the education sector faster than other industries. Synthesizing cutting-edge research from the Penn GSE, we will present a clear picture of what traits and skills have uniquely positioned women to be successful in “purpose-driven” organizations. Lastly, we'll tell journey stories of three entrepreneurial women leading startups in education and how they used entrepreneurial mindset to rise to the top.
