Women + Leadership (Bay Area)
Join the California Teacher Development Collaborative at the 9th annual Women + Leadership Conference! This powerful, one-day event brings together educators from schools throughout the Bay Area to support women on their path toward more powerful and empowering leadership.
Focusing on the theme Responsive Leadership: Interrupting the Status Quo, this year’s conference will explore what it means to be authentic and effective leaders who stay true to our most deeply held values while mobilizing our communities.
We will hear from women about the paths they have forged to become visionary leaders and how we can all be more courageous agents of change. There will also be the opportunities to recognize those whose shoulders we stand upon; share stories and make connections with other women educators at all stages of their own leadership journeys; learn new skills to foster growth; and plan to make a difference.
Featured Presenters and Activities:
- Keynote: Zaretta Hammond, teacher educator and the author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and The Brain, tells her own story and speaks about the skill, will, and capacity needed to interrupt the status quo and serve all of our students.
