The mission of The New York State Association for Women in Administration is to relentlessly pursue gender balanced leadership, and to champion equity and diversity in education.
The New York State Association for Women in Administration was established in 1990 to address the lack of women in educational leadership positions. It was the genesis of a group of individuals who met to develop at statewide network, now known as NYSAWA. This group determined to create programs to identify and promote women in leadership.
Established in 1990, the New York State Association for Women in Administration (NYSAWA) is a growing organization that offers important and timely information about topics on leadership in education and gender equity.
