Webinar Description

Girls have made tremendous strides in academic achievement in recent years, but the continuing gender gap in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and leadership remains a serious concern for parents and educators.  

The female learning and leadership style is shaped both by socialization and by the way the female brain grows and develops. Girls crave certain elements of teaching, learning, mentoring, and counsel. The lack of these elements can lead to low self-esteem, learning difficulties, especially in STEM classes, and lack of leadership development.

The more you understand how nature, nurture and culture affect girls’ learning and growth, the more effective you will be as an educator, mentor and parent of girls.

Join Michael Gurian, an expert in gender-specific learning, for a 2-hour webinar on practical strategies and techniques for adjusting your classrooms, school environments, and best practices to fit girls’ specific needs.  Michael recently did a highly-rated webinar for us on boys. Now it’s the girls’ turn.  This webinar is not about creating a whole new curriculum. It is about working with your existing structures and pedagogy to help girls learn, grow, achieve, and lead. Michael’s webinars are interactive, humorous, insightful, practical and include remarkable brain scans that help you comprehend the biological differences in boy and girl learning.

Webinar Topics

  • Brain-based research on how girls and boys learn and grow
