Raise Your Hand

Raise Your Hand

How women in leadership can stand up and be heard.

Any good leader knows when to both listen, and when to raise their hand and speak up. But gender-based expectations about using your voice and being confident are too often limiting for women in leadership. Andrea Thompson and Jessica Gomez sit down with principal Jennifer Black to discuss:

  • Importance of trust
  • Developing self-compassion and confidence
  • Being a role model for others
  • The benefits of speaking up

Jennifer Black is principal of Lincoln Elementary School in North Las Vegas, and is president-elect of the Nevada Elementary School Principals Association.
