Dr Khan attends global conference on Leadership for GirlsPosted on: 03/07/2019
Dr Khan has been representing Didcot Girls' School at an international conference in Los Angeles, California! This exciting conference themed Dream, Dare, Do: Girls as Makers, Inventors, Engineers, and Entrepreneurs was an absolute feast for anyone invested in leadership or young people. The conference explored how it is critical to instill in girls and young women the confidence to dream, dare, and do:
"Girls’ aspirations and creative thinking must be encouraged in order to take shape and grow. This is achieved by ensuring girls are inspired to challenge limits, explore new possibilities, embrace innovation, and seize opportunities. Courage and a willingness to take risks without fear of failure is essential to a girl’s creative process as she turns her dreams into reality. Girls’ schools are the perfect environments in which to spark, incubate, and launch the next generation of female makers, inventors, engineers, and entrepreneurs."
Dr Khan also presented at the conference on the student leadership provisions and ethos journey that we have been on at DGS which now gives us a global presence!
