Women of Color in Education: A Leadership Symposium

Women of Color in Education: A Leadership Symposium

Presented by The Authentic and Organized LifeBenson Rutten Innovations, & TAINA Coaching and Training

Saturday, June 16, 2018
10:00am - 5:00pm

Women of color professionals in education often navigate their careers in spaces that are male-dominated and predominately white.  This makes it challenging to carve out the time or space to develop supportive relationships and practices that speak to who they are and where they want to go in their careers.  This professional development symposium will focus on how women of color educators can transform their work and their organizations by empowering themselves and other women of color in education.  It will provide participants with the time and space to share their own experiences and be in community with their "sisters."

Participants will:

  • Explore strategies that will help you reclaim your time, space, and voice within your colleges/universities, K-12 schools, and nonprofit organizations.

  • Learn new ways to motivate, encourage, inspire, and support yourself and other women of color in our communities.

  • Walk away with innovative ways to practice self-care, navigate political minefields, and gain clarity on your career goals.

The Leadership Symposium offers:

  • A full day (6 hours) workshop (plus lunch provided)

  • Accountability partners

  • Private Facebook access

  • Materials to support your work post-gathering
