On my mind...

Two Women's Initiatives Underway

I am pleased to see that two powerful initiatives are underway in support of women in leadership. This is good for women leaders as well as those of us men in support of fairness and equity in educational employment.

On May 18th NYSCOSS is hosting a "Women's Initiative" in Saratoga Springs. The Women's Initiative will focus on supporting women educational leaders to inspire more women to seek leadership positions in education. This is an important effort and superintendents across NYS should encourage and support attendance at this day-long event. Information can be found on the NYSCOSS.org website.

Also in May, NYSAWA (NYS Association for Women in Administration) will be hosting four professional development events, 4:00 PM to 7:30 PM in Buffalo - Rochester - Syracuse - Albany. These regional events are part of NYSAWA's 'Women Administrators Professional Development Series.' In addition to small group sessions and dinner, Dr. Sue Gray will give a presentation on “Women in Leadership: Reflections From a Longitudinal View.“ This regional series is part of NYSAWA's Women Administrators Professional Development Series.

ELI @ NYSAWA - our professional development initiative

The New York State Association for Women in Administration (NYSAWA) is pleased to provide a unique professional development initiative.  NYSAWA is partnered with the Educational Leadership Institute (ELI) to enhance and expand professional development opportunities in support of educational administrators and school district officials across New York State.

The Educational Leadership Institute (ELI) was established in 2008 for educational leaders to enhance their knowledge through high quality programs, workshops, and conferences.  ELI @ NYSAWA has embraced and expanded these programs, workshops, and conferences over the past several years.  ELI @ NYSAWA is a statewide provider of high quality professional development programs serving the PreK-12 academic community.  The efforts of ELI @ NYSAWA focuses on contemporary issues affecting the policies and practices of PreK-12 educational institutions, including their implications for strategic planning, organizational development, and leadership decision-making. Programs will be offered at statewide locations.

James (Jim) M. Merrins, Ed.D. is the Executive Program Administrator of ELI @ NYSAWA.  We look for NYSAWA members for support and participation as we grow this effort.
