A partnership with ACSA and the American Association of School Administrators will bring together female leaders from across the nation to learn, network and collaborate during the 2012 Women’s Leadership Forum.
The event, to be held Sept. 27-28 in Newport Beach, is the premier networking and educational experience designed to engage, enlighten and empower women school system leaders from across the country. Focused on leadership excellence, this forum will help female leaders build skills, share solutions, strengthen professional networks and sharpen career planning.
During this conference, participants will be inspired by stories of great accomplishment while renewing their passion for public education; learn to apply successful business principles to their ultimate advantage; strengthen their support network through dialogue with other school system leaders and advance their career goals with résumé review and one-on-one coaching sessions.
“At times, being a school administrator seems very isolating. That may be especially true for women administrators. It is healthy for all in leadership positions to build a set of colleagues and networks that support the work that you are doing as well as provide for personal connections that enhance your life. It is also critical that administrators keep abreast of the current research and best practices in teaching, learning and school administration,” said Sharon Robison, director of ACSA’s Leading the Leaders program.
Led by experienced, successful women, sessions will focus on the key issues facing female educational leaders today, including having tough conversations, teacher/leader evaluations, best practices for site leaders, selecting and working with mentors, establishing a professional network, the politics of the job, equity and many more.
