This paper explores the importance of academic leadership within dentistry and its relevance to women. In doing so, it considers the context of women’s leadership opportunities, emphasising the importance of women embracing senior roles, highlighting some of the challenges they may face in doing so and suggesting solutions. It is argued that leadership is an essential component of any career in academic dentistry and this is a career with great privilege – not just a job.
