“The authors provide a timely and much-needed focus on women in leadership. Men and women alike can benefit from the collective wisdom of these talented and highly successful leaders. This is a how-to, must-do, and can-do resource that should be an essential volume in every leader’s library.”

Robert Eaker, professor emeritus, Middle Tennessee State University

“From the moment I read the foreword by Becky DuFour’s daughter to the closing chapter written by male allies with their lessons learned from women, I was captivated. Each chapter’s personal stories resonated with my own stories of leadership, creating such a connective experience. It’s a must-read for any woman serving—or aiming to serve—in a leadership role. I’m honored to have read it; I’m honored to share it.”

Rhonda J. Roos, author, The Deliberate and Courageous Principal

Women Who Lead made me feel seen as a wife, mother, and instructional leader and reignited my passion for leading in education. The targeted moments of reflection throughout the book allowed me to re-center my purpose and filled me with a sense of empowerment. As women, we face unique challenges on the path to finding our true leader from within. Women Who Lead sets the stage to unlocking our full potential. It is simply a must-read.”

Courtney Sinclair, assistant principal, Coppell Middle School North, Coppell, Texas

Women Who Lead is a wonderful collection of essays that provides practical advice, prompts for self-reflection, and inspirational stories. There is something here for any woman educator who is interested in taking the next step in leadership. A valuable, readable resource.”
