Women in Leadership (LA)

Building Community:  Forging Connections Within, Between and Beyond Our Schools

While as women we may be good at cultivating relationships, we often are not as intentional about developing and sustaining professional connections that can lead us to new opportunities and ways of being in the world.  At this year’s Women in Leadership Conference, we will explore the vital role networks, mentorships, and sponsorships play in fostering personal well-being and professional growth.  

At this year’s conference, participants will hear from women who are visionary in their leadership, passionate about creating community, and committed to mentoring the next generation. There will also be the opportunity to celebrate those who have paved the way for us; make connections with other women educators at all stages of their careers; learn new skills to foster networks of support; and finally, develop a plan for reaching up to mentors and sponsors, and reaching out to become a mentor or sponsor.

Featured Presenters and Activities:

  • Keynote: Elena Aguilar, author of The Art of Coaching and The Art of Coaching Teams speaks about building resilient communities and the power of networks throughout our professional lives
  • In Conversation: Reveta Bowers, Former Head of School at The Center for Early Education, and Baudelia Taylor, Head of School at Crestview Preparatory School, talk about their experiences as mentor and mentee with Stella Beale, Director of Studies at Windward School
  • Experiential activities to facilitate connections and build networking skills
  • Opportunities for reflection and goal setting
