NCGS staff spoke at Atlanta Girls’ School and attended the Young Women’s Leadership Network Affiliate Convening.

Executive Director Megan Murphy met up with Director of Strategic Communications & Research Olivia Haas in her hometown of Atlanta last week while Director of Strategic Initiatives & Professional Development Jen Shakeshaft traveled to New York City. Here’s what they said from the road:

“I had the distinct pleasure of being invited by Ayanna “Yanni” Hill-Gill, a member of the NCGS Board of Trustees and Head of Atlanta Girls’ School (AGS), to give the keynote address for The Girls’ School Advantage: An Evening with Experts in All-Girls Education event at her school. After speaking to an audience of AGS parents, prospective parents, alumnae, trustees, and faculty, I had the privilege of participating in a panel discussion led by Yanni. Panelists included Autumn Adkins Graves, Head of Girls Preparatory School; Michele Ozumba, President of the Women’s College Coalition; and Ann Klotz, NCGS Trustee and Head of Laurel School.”  — Megan Murphy

“I attended the fourth annual Young Women’s Leadership Network Affiliate Convening co-hosted by YWLN and the Young Women’s Preparatory Network in Texas. Highlights included networking with educators from tuition-free schools around the country, hearing Rachel Simmons speak about her new book Enough As She Is , and visiting with students at The Young Women’s Leadership Schools of Queens and East Harlem.” — Jen Shakeshaft
