Women in Leadership (LA)

3rd Annual Conference | 2015

Theme: Finding Your Authentic Voice

Leading is a complicated challenge. We want to be respected and liked; visionary and detail-orientated; tough and compassionate. Yet the reality of our roles forces us to face complicated dilemmas and conflicting priorities that can challenge how genuinely we are able to lead. So the question we must ask ourselves is: How can I navigate the complexities of my role– whether as a teacher or an administrator– while leading with integrity?

During this one-day conference for independent school women, pharm we will probe this question and discover how our personal and professional journeys shape who we are. We will also explore how to harness the power of our stories and professional relationships in order to lead authentically.

This year’s agenda includes:

  • Keynote by Ann McElaney-Johnson, President of Mount St. Mary’s College and author of the Report on the Status of Women and Girls in California
  • “In Conversation:” Karen Eshoo (Head of Vista Mar School) and Elizabeth McGregor (Head of Westridge School)
  • Small group sessions, networking opportunities, and more!
