Women in Leadership (SF)

Yes… And: Making Our Way as Leaders

Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual; we’re all improvising as we build our careers as educators. How can we harness “Yes… And” thinking to make the most of our opportunities for leadership, whatever our particular role or circumstance may be? How can we develop the habits of authenticity, vision, and creativity to be transformative leaders? Join like-minded independent school women for inspiring discussions, engaging skill-building sessions, and a one-of-a-kind opportunity for networking and building our community. Let’s dive in to “Yes… And” to inspire real change in ourselves and in our schools!

This year’s agenda includes:

  • Keynote by Dr. Jennifer Brokaw, emergency physician and healthcare entrepreneur
  • “Leading from the Middle” in conversation with Jennifer Arnest (San Francisco Friends School), Juna McDaid (Drew School), Shahana Sarkar (Head-Royce School); moderated by Katherine Dinh (Prospect Sierra School)
  • Small group sessions, breakout work, and networking opportunities
