Born multi-taskers, women in the 21st century, can be found everywhere! Be it the corporate world or politics; they never fail to bring something different to the table and groom organizations to emerge as vibrant and successful entities. Like any other industry, the education sector also has some iconic women leaders and administrators who are spearheading the education sector to a path of progression and possibilities. Women leaders in education are developing greater interactivity with students and help them achieve greater engagement with learning and better results. They are playing a vital role in improving higher education in India and all over the world.
The proportion of women educators in developing countries, including India, has risen significantly in recent years. However, their participation in leadership positions is comparatively low due to ingrained negative perceptions as well as several sociocultural barriers. Ignoring the gender gap, Women leaders are bringing about equality in the country where along with education, young aspirants get guides, friends, and a philosopher in them.
As women continue to take up leadership roles in every sector of society, many women leaders have successfully made the journey from educators, to entrepreneurs, to educational leaders. Celebrating their journey and success stories can help inspire others to follow in their footsteps; Higher Education Digest presents “10 Most Influential Women Leaders in Indian Education”, commending their efforts to bring about a change in the education sector and revolutionizing it.
