Leading Educator Panel: Diversity and Innovation in School Systems

Today's national picture of systems-level leadership is problematic in terms of preparation, pipeline, retention, and diversity. The leadership needed to transform outcomes for students is difficult to attract, and even more difficult to sustain. But bold members of Chiefs for Change, a national advocacy organization with a network of 27 state and district leaders, have developed strategies to tackle this challenge and implement innovative policies to practices that are improving student outcomes. Join us for a dialogue about what it takes to create the conditions for school and student success, and how to identify, foster, and support diverse leaders to amplify these bright spots.

Moderator: Mike Magee, CEO, Chiefs for Change

Panelists: Barbara Jenkins, Superintendent, Orange County Public Schools; Wanda Legrand, Deputy Chancellor of Social, Emotional, and Academic Development, DC Public Schools; Pedro Martinez, Superintendent, San Antonio Independent School District; Matthew Montano, Deputy Secretary of Teaching & Learning, New Mexico Public Education Department
