Call for Proposals for LA Educating Girls Symposium

NCGS is accepting proposals for its upcoming Educating Girls Symposium at Westridge School in Los Angeles on October 23, 2017. This professional development opportunity is for educators to come together and exchange best practices for teaching and working with girls.
School Communities: The Power of Many Voices will address:

  • How do the various "communities" in your school -- students, teachers, administrators, admissions teams, advancement officers, parents, and more -- collaborate to create a space where girls feel safe, valued, and appreciated?
  • How does your school resolve conflict when any one of these voices is perceived to overshadow others?
  • How are the mission, vision, and values of your school reflected in the development of your school community?
We invite you to submit a proposal to present on your area of expertise. Click here to learn more about the call for proposals guidelines and instructions, and click here to access the submission form.
The deadline for proposals is August 14, 2017.
