As you know, we face some staggering statistics in Arizona for educational success. Being toward the bottom only means that we can get creative about how to make a difference. Our front line offense is to target women leaders who are serving as school assistant principals, principals, superintendents, department chairs, and administrators. These women need our help! And each of us has a talent, knowledge base and definitely an opinion that can ensure these women are successful against all the system is throwing at them! Let’s Make a Difference: Supporting our Women Leaders In Education.
ATHENA Valley of the Sun is acting as a convener of a three part session: IGNITE Change: Education in Arizona
Thursday, June 7: An Open Space for Organizing: A simple and fun way to self-organize according to interests, skills, intention, passion or curiosity. The purpose is to find and link up with like-minded others who can work together to formulate actions (or whatever). There is no right or wrong. The outcome will be a gathering together around commonalities. During July, the groups will be encouraged to identify some way to move their interests forward.
Thursday, Aug 2: Status Check: a time to reconnect and see what has been learned, identified for further study or actions intended. We will be capturing intentions, visions, and purpose as reported out, take a breath and decide what comes next.
Join this collaborative effort with multiple women’s groups who are concerned about the future of women leadership in education in the Valley. Lets make a difference by sharing what we know about finance, strategy, business acumen, community building and women’s leadership.
Together we can IGNITE a difference!
