Mel Conference

Women in Leadership Conference

Our Principal Mel Curtis attended the Equal Pay Day Conference in Prague in March as a special guest mentoring international women in business. Mrs Curtis led a number of workshops covering significant topics such as defining leadership and equal pay issues.

The Equal Pay DayConference was the catalyst for some of the world’s top female CEOs and leaders to come together and use this forum to share their personal success and failure stories with up and coming leaders. It was also an opportunity to share their first-hand experience and practical hands-on tips on how to juggle everyday life and success.

Mrs Curtis was the only educationalist in attendance, but education is an important area that would definitely need to be developed, so the issues of equality, female leadership and equal pay are discussed at an early age with students in schools.

Forward-thinking and modern schools have as their objectives that to build young people who are resilient and authentic, and provide a character-building education in step with the times that will support students to find their true self.

I believe that cooperatively it's about culture and a workplace where everyone cares for each other and feels equal and safe enough to make mistakes and become resilient from them. Finding your grit is my motto! Mel Curtis, Principal La Côte International School Aubonne

Mentoring TOPIC

Defining leadership

Leadership is not about the role you’re in. It is about the stance you take and the way you feel and the actions you take in any number of moments.

Resilience and the ability to keep going. Staying true to yourself through your integrity, values and morals.

What kind of good advice would you like to share?

Leadership is not about the role you’re in. It is about the stance you take, the way you feel and the actions you take in any number of moments. It’s not only about being able to speak to a large audience and lead them somewhere. In fact, leadership may be about the opposite, about guiding others to find their own pathways, discover their own power, and speak their own words. Leadership happens when we are authentic, assertive, aspiring and emotionally intelligent. In a culture that sends women mixed messages about just how powerful they can be, many women are uncertain about leadership. They are passionate about changing the world but worry about how their authority will be perceived.

We need to celebrate the powerful roles that adult women play in a girl’s life. We need to expand definitions and challenge traditional concepts about leadership, explore what it means to be a woman and the various roles and ways in which we express that identity, and finally, to do something different.

About me

I have been a school Principal for 25 years in schools around the world. I am now based in Switzerland and have been part of the Nord Anglia Education group for 5 years in Chicago and Prague.
I am passionate in developing girls’ skills to be self-aware, take healthy risks and speak for themselves.
We need to encourage girls to develop the confidence to use their talents in leadership roles within and beyond the school community. A generation of women, now and in the future who have the ability to lead and make a difference to the world.
We need a society where girls and women engage authentically and assertively at every level of decision making in all areas of their lives. We need to create learning environments where teachers foster the positive qualities of girls, empower learning and create a learning community in which each girl can recognise and develop her own intellectual power and personal strengths
