2019 National Women’s Leadership Consortium



 AASA, The School Superintendents Association is proud to announce the launch of the 2019 National Women’s Leadership Consortium.  This consortium is building on the foundation AASA began several years ago to elevate the role of female leaders in education.  Last year, through a generous grant from Gates Foundation, AASA produced videos of nine highly successful superintendents so they could share their stories of achieving the role of Chief Learner in their respective school districts. You can view the videos here. These women were part of the 2018 National Women’s Leadership Consortium, which was comprised of 20 public school superintendents and five corporate/non-profit CEOs. 

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 will be comprised of up to 35 superintendents and up to 10 corporate or non-profit organization CEOs.  This important group of engaged women, school and corporate leaders, is certain to make a long-lasting imprint on today's public education landscape for years to come. We're looking for like-minded women leaders who are innovators and risk takers in the field of education and leadership, people who advance opportunities for all youth by the example they set. 

Pat Dr. Pat Neudecker, AASA past president, has agreed to serve as Superintendent Lead for the consortium. 









 AASA would like to thank Horace Mann for providing support to help make this program possible.
