Leading the Way Forward Through the Power of Hope
Where: The University Club
When: October 26, 2023
Who should attend: Leadership teams
Throughout history, the world’s greatest leaders have been charged with building hope, especially in times of despair. The science of hope reveals that hope is more than wishful thinking. Hope empowers us to find our way in times of uncertainty, take courageous action in times of fear, and persevere in the face of adversity. Hope is the cornerstone of effective leadership and is essential for inspiring a shared vision that propels us to take meaningful collective action toward an exciting future.
Throughout this inspiring day of learning alongside other education leaders, participants will explore the evolving science of hope and how it’s connected to a sense of belonging in our classrooms, schools, and communities. Join this session to learn why hope matters now more than ever before – and how you can cultivate a culture of high hope throughout your education system and community.
Registration is now closed. If you would like to be added to the wait list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
