Leading from Within...

We know it is lonely at the top, this especially holds true for women. The KWEL network is designed to support women serving in high level leadership roles in schools districts. The purpose of this group is really three-fold. First, it will give women that are currently serving as the superintendent the opportunity to mentor and support each other and also those seeking to be in top level leadership positions. Second, it will support women that aspire to lead but may need the confidence, courage and support to take the next step. Finally, this network will give all women serving in leadership roles the opportunity to grow as leaders through an additional support system unique to the needs of women and the challenges they face.
