What's in this episode?

This week we are throwing back to a WomenEd event in November where we discussed the importance of female digital leadership both within the education and edtech sector alike. You'll hear about 

WomenEd_Tech - the spin off handle from grassroots movement WomenEd focusing on digital leadership
EdtechWomenUK - the UK and London chapter of the international Edtech Women movement out of SXSWedu and Austin
Nevertheless - the podcast series focused on resurfacing stories in amazing female leadership in education innovation and technology in the past and present day

You'll also hear a live discussion looking at:

a) Why digital leadership is important for female leaders (all leaders!) within schools
b) Why we think more female involvement in edtech funding, design and development is important for edtech being developed for schools
