Silos to Synergy:  A Call to Co-Lead for Equitable Schools 

Professional learning that shifts teacher practice should be sustained, collaborative, and connected to teaching—but it can be hard to find the time and the focus to do this. The challenge intensifies when we attempt to lead teaching transformations for equity from a single role or department. In this interactive session, get ready to envision, reflect on, and prioritize opportunities to move from silos to collective leadership and bring equity-centered professional learning from the margins to the core.

Ideal participants: All administrators, coaches and specialists involved in designing, leading, or supporting instructional change initiatives in your district.

Schedule as a collaborative keynote (90 minutes), full-day workshop or two-part series (2 x 120 minutes).
