Middle Grades


Leading From Behind

Friday, November 10
9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: 205

Gifted adolescent boys and girls have similar professional aspirations, yet they live in a world in which women are not making it to the top of any profession anywhere in the world. Through the voices of successful gifted female adults, this session identifies the challenges they faced as they climbed to leadership roles within the fields of academe, industry, and politics. The goals of this session are to provide information and strategies to help gifted middle school girls maintain their trajectory toward high levels of achievement and to help gifted boys identify talent among their peers regardless of gender or race.
