Leaders of Color (SF)

This program is an opportunity for educators of color to explore their leadership visions, opportunities, and aspirations within and beyond independent schools. For experienced, emerging and questioning leaders of color at all stages of their careers, this yearlong series will offer participants time and support to:

  • Clarify their visions and goals as educators,
  • Identify core leadership competencies and challenges,
  • Design their own professional growth plans, and
  • Network and build vital personal and professional relationships.

With the intention of knowing and sustaining ourselves in our careers, we will lean into case studies; reflect on our own experiences; talk frankly about the challenges, opportunities and expectations for leaders of color; recognize our personal growth edges; and drill down on the skills and knowledge we have and need to thrive on our diverse professional paths. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from guest educational leaders in and beyond the independent school community, who will share their own journeys and lessons learned as leaders of color.

Steve and Alison are excited to bring Leaders of Color: A Professional Learning Community back for its third year in the San Francisco Bay Area. The program is also in its second year in the Seattle area, co-facilitated by Alison and Percy Abram, Head of the Bush School, through a collaboration with NWAIS.
