JOIN the:

Oxfordshire Women Leading in Education Network (OWLIE), a collaboration between OTSA, #WomenEd and the SE WLIE network.


  • This network is open to all women in education.  We are a cross-phase, cross-sector network.
  • This network is inclusive and for women who are leading or who aspire to lead.
  • This network welcomes #heforshe champions.  


  • Teaching is a female heavy profession but our leadership teams and Headteachers do not reflect this.
  • Research shows that women have a confidence gap that leads to a pay gap so we will help you grow your confidence and negotiate your worth.
  • Connecting and collaborating with others in the community will inspire and empower you.
  • Sharing experiences will help others on their leadership journey. 


  • We will create a series of regular face-to-face opportunities to connect with others.
  • Half-termly networking events, termly #LeadMeets and an annual regional event.
  • Follow @womenedSE on Twitter and #womened
