Whether you are a classroom teacher, dean, department chair or aspiring Head of School, we believe it’s vital for women to come together to learn and explore our individual approaches and challenges to leadership.  Now in its 3rd year in L.A., this is the only program of its kind that seeks to bring together women from Southern California independent schools to build personal relationships and professional networks while exploring relevant topics of women’s leadership. Using research, case studies, and our own experiences, we will explore how to bring your authentic self “to the table” through knowing and telling your story, understanding the topic of power, and embracing your emotional and physical presence.  In addition, this ongoing program will explore some of the current trends and latest research and the application to our work in schools, and will allow group members to practice and refine the skills needed to be the best school leaders possible.

Over the course of five meetings, participants will have the opportunity to form close relationships with peers and mentors, attend an overnight retreat at a spectacular local site, share stories and strategies, practice public speaking and grapple with challenges together. This group is open to anyone interested in gender and leadership—teachers, administrators and those aspiring to change their role or style in some way. The spirit and connection of this group is part of its power. For anyone who seeks a safe, supportive professional community of women outside of your own school, this group is for you!

Due to retreat location space constraints, this program is limited to 20 participants. Register early!
