Global Leadership Week (GLW) is a week-long convening of virtual and face to face events designed to celebrate leadership through global action in K20 education. GLW is an opportunity for education leaders to learn from one another and share effective principles in leadership, particularly within the context of an interconnected, global age.
We invite you to join with the global community for one of the virtual events this week, or to join us physically in Boston on Friday for the third-annual Global Leadership Summit, a day-long convening of AMAZING global education experts, co-hosted by ASCD and Global Education Events (GlobalEdCon).
Have a great week!
