2022 National Women’s Leadership Consortium


Why a Women’s Leadership Consortium?

AASA, The School Superintendents Association, is committed to preparing a diverse talent pool of leaders to support America's schools and school systems. Providing instruction and supports that stretch all learners, meeting their needs and strengths is at the core of everything educators  do. We believe that when leaders learn, network and grow together, learners  benefit from the collective impact that is generated. All leaders have a responsibility to promote and nurture the next generation of talent, "paying it forward," so that American's children have caring, knowledgeable and courageous leaders. 

In recent years, AASA has engaged in an initiative to elevate the role of females and other under-represented leaders in education. AASA has produced videos and vignettes of highly successful female superintendents' sharing leadership stories in their role of Chief Learner in their school districts. AASA hosts an Aspiring Superintendent Academy® for Female Leaders as well as a National Women's Leadership Consortium.

AASA is proud to launch the new 2022 National Women's Leadership Consortium. The 2022 National Women's Leadership Consortium will bring together up to 35 like-minded female superintendents and other school district leaders, and/or corporate or nonprofit leaders who are innovators and risk-takers in the field of leadership. We are seeking people who advance opportunities for all youth by the example they set and the way they advocate.

You are invited to join the only cohort specifically designed for women in top positions of leadership in school systems, corporations and nonprofit organizations. The Consortium plans hold 6 virtual meetings plus two in-person session. The first meeting will be in June, 2022 in Washington, D.C. and at the National Conference on Education in San Antonio, Texas in February 2023. During these meetings, female leaders will extend collective impact through networking and sharing best practices. National Women's Leadership Consortium 2022 is continuing our theme of Leadership Wellness Matters in building a more equity-focused world. Leaders need balance in their lives and to lead courageously and think deeply as they also attend to social, emotional and familial needs.
