Through spirited conversation and active participation in an experiential learning laboratory, participants will have the unique opportunity to deepen their understanding of their own signature leadership presence and how they can lead with their authentic voice and style. They'll also have an opportunity to work collaboratively on a real-world design challenge to help move the needle on equity in school leadership.
