Culturally Responsive Leadership: Exploring Identities, Examining Structures, Creating Change

 

Since 2010, CATDC has hosted its annual Women + Leadership Conference to inspire independent school women to grow and develop as leaders in their personal and professional lives. Women + Leadership is an affinity space that is welcoming and respectful of all women of all backgrounds, including trans women and those who are nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and any others who identify as a woman in a way that is significant to them.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Join the California Teacher Development Collaborative at the 12th annual Women + Leadership Conference! This one-day event  provides inspiration and support for equity-centered women educators in navigating their professional journeys with purpose.

Focusing on the theme Culturally Responsive Leadership: Exploring Identities, Examining Structures, Creating Change, this year’s conference will allow us to explore our own experiences as women and leaders, and consider how we leverage our power and positionality to build just and equitable schools.

Together we will:

  • Honor and acknowledge our histories and present positionalities in order to grow as leaders in our community
  • Apply a culturally and historically responsive lens to  building communities where all have the opportunity to flourish and thrive
  • Lay out a path to reconnection and reintegration with ourselves and others

Conference Highlights:

  • Dr. Gholdy Muhammad, keynote speaker
  • Experiential activities to spark reflection and provide opportunities for goal setting
  • Facilitated concurrent sessions to build connections and amplify learning

Participants that register before January 7th will receive a special gift in the mail. Register soon with your address to be included!

 

INTENDED AUDIENCE

At CATDC, we acknowledge that the feminist movement has a history of exclusion and marginalization.  We want to break out of that pattern by adopting a definition of women that is gender-inclusive and gender-expansive, and one that challenges white supremacy. Women + Leadership is an affinity space that is welcoming and respectful of all women of all backgrounds, including trans women and those who are nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and any others who identify as a woman in a way that is significant to them.
