Equity-driven school leaders have skills and dispositions that ensure each student, particularly those furthest from justice, are prepared for a limitless future. Join Max Silverman, Executive Director, and Michele Mason, Director of Instructional Leadership, with the University of Washington Center for Educational Leadership, as they share current research and frameworks that support central office leaders in defining what it means to be an equity-driven, learning-focused school leader.

Participants will deepen their understanding of what it means to bridge leading for equity and instructional leadership. Dr. Jermaine Dawson, Chief Academic Officer for Birmingham City Schools (AL) and Dr. Chris Lennox, Superintendent of Mounds View Public Schools (MN) will provide examples and share insights on supporting this type of leadership across a school system.
