National Women’s Leadership Consortium

Women educators, leading learning.

Women in leadership and education

AASA is committed to preparing a diverse talent pool of leaders to support America's schools and school systems. 

In recent years, AASA has engaged in an initiative to elevate the role of women and other underrepresented leaders in education. AASA hosts an Aspiring Superintendent Academy® for Female Leaders as well as this National Women's Leadership Consortium. 

This consortium is specifically designed for women in leadership positions across all sectors impacting public education!


Women Educators, Leading Learning
The Consortium will explore:
  • Transforming School Culture
  • Reaching EACH Scholar
  • Leading with Heart
  • Financial WELLness
  • Leading for Equity
  • Be Well to Lead Well
  • Mentoring the Next Generation of Talent

  • Leading Innovation in a Digital Age

  • Strategies for Leading During Challenging Times

We believe that with Women Educators Leading Learning (#AASAWELL), we can truly change the landscape of growth opportunities for the young people in this nation.

Who should participate?
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!
