Established by former HGSE dean Kathleen McCartney, Women in Education Leadership convenes senior leaders interested in strengthening and leveraging their leadership skills to advance education initiatives. The program provides a unique opportunity for personal growth and renewal with like-minded women.
The program focuses on how senior leaders must navigate the multiple responsibilities and constituencies of their roles. Through workshops, lectures and case discussions you will analyze and practice advanced leadership techniques, exploring topics such as negotiation and communication. You will learn to think more strategically and strengthen your leadership capacity.
The interactive nature of the program is designed to facilitate continual assessment, rich reflection and peer-to-peer networking. You will create lasting connections with other women leaders who are as committed as you are to leading change in education.
Senior leaders across K-12 and higher education are welcome to attend.
