Missouri Women Leaders in Education Conference


Women face unique challenges when it comes to advancement in many fields, including education. With this free event, we hope to provide an opportunity for you to learn from women who have ascended to leadership positions in education, including Missouri Commissioner of Education, Dr. Margie Vandeven, and network with other female education leaders and aspiring leaders. 

Space is limited; register today! Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

When: October 2, 2019, 9 am - 3 pm
Where: University of Missouri, Stotler Lounge
518 Hitt St., Columbia, MO 65211

Walk into any classroom in the U.S. and there is a 79% chance you’ll see a woman leading instruction, but walk into a principal’s office, and it drops to 50%. In the superintendent’s office, that percentage drops even further to less than 25%. Things won’t change overnight, but when we connect and learn from each other, we all grow.

MASTER CHEF

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.
