Come and explore the latest research on effective leadership and leadership development. Because of the obvious gender gap in school leadership—while women make up the majority of educators, the majority of higher-level leaders are male—we will focus on gender as a starting place for exploring:

· How unconscious biases affect leadership choices—for yourself and others

· How to move beyond traditional views of leadership that often limit the talent pool and lead to linear views of ed reform
