Leading With Your Values

Leading With Your Values took place November 2, 2022.


Be on the lookout for the next values-based LEE workshop soon!


To achieve educational equity in our country, communities need visionary, effective leaders who center their work on the most marginalized students. To build these skills and support members in creating meaningful change, LEE hosted a fall session of Leading With Your Values. This program was the first part of LEE's November Workshop Series, three separate events designed to take your leadership skills to the next level.


Event Overview

In today’s climate, it’s not uncommon to feel burnt out, distracted by the latest national crisis, or disconnected from your professional or community purpose. If you’re in a position of leadership or exploring one, these circumstances make it difficult to support others, let alone yourself.

LEE’s Leading with Your Values workshop offers you tools to ground yourself and lead in a sustainable way that aligns with the impact you are aiming to achieve. In this workshop, explore the concept of liberatory leadership, learn practical advice from expert coaches, and connect with like-minded members across the country.
