   Leadership Seminar 


Calling all women who aspire to Headship and Senior Leadership positions! The 2022 Fall Women's Leadership Seminar registration is now open! This weekend, taught by a faculty of female heads of school from across the country, is designed to both equip and inspire you as an independent school leader. The seminar will be taught by female heads but is applicable for all those considering headship and senior leadership...this weekend will be one you will long remember. As many participants have said, "It was by far the best professional experience of my life."

The Seminar will be held on the campus of William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia, PA  Friday, October 21 (4:00 pm start time) until Sunday, October 23 at 12:00 Noon. The Seminar limits its enrollment, and the school must be a member of The Heads Network.

An email Acceptance Confirmation will be sent within two weeks with additional information, including the Seminar hotel with special rate. Each participant will be responsible for making her own hotel and transportation arrangements.

Each participant will have a faculty member mentor who will meet with her during the Seminar, AND each participant will have access to The Heads Network Career Opportunity Center with senior leadership openings by member schools.
