Women in Educational Leadership (WEL) Symposium
Building a Culture of Support
Facilitated By Dr. LaFaye Platter & Dr. Suzette Lovely
The WEL Symposium grew out of a desire to see more women flourish in school leadership positions. Since 2018, our network has provided an opportunity for hundreds of female educators to build connections and rise together. We invite you to join us on this voyage of sisterhood, self-discovery and sense-making to work in unison on behalf of the students we serve.
