8:35 am – 10:35 am  Advocacy and Empowerment: Finding Your Voice and Creating Space for Others to Assert Theirs
Presenter: Colonel Yvonne Spencer

Drawing on her 25 years in a male-dominated workforce, Yvonne has developed an approach to overcoming obstacles through advocating for herself and developing an “Outspoken Toolkit” which has been highly influential in a network of triathlete leaders and others who are blazing trails and overcoming stereotypes. Through sharing her personal narrative and through interactive discussion points, she’ll lead education executives in discovering their voice and creating an organizational climate where all personnel are empowered and encouraged to use their voice to solve problems and effectively advocate for the needs of students.

Learning Objectives:
  • Determine your leadership voice by examining what matters to you.
  • Identify key challenges to using your voice and potential means to remove or overcome these barriers to advocate for your professional growth and organizational success.
  • Determine how to build the “bench” (i.e. your legacy) by creating, developing, and sustaining an environment of confidence and empowerment.

Strategic Leadership for Executives in Education
Presenter: Jeff Rose, Ed.D., Founder/CEO of Leading ED Solutions, LLC

How do school business officials with the incredibly niched knowledge base of school finance and administration build influence with stakeholders within every area of the school district? Engage in scenario-based challenges, interactive discussions, and active listening as you unpack the pros and cons of the education culture and the challenges it sometimes creates for the business/operations office. Plus, you’ll learn first-hand how one superintendent moved beyond the state of “educational naivete” into a mindset that fostered trust and influence.

Learning Objectives:
  • Apply communication techniques that connect and inspire in addition to sharing data and information.
  • Be able to influence stakeholders through a deeper knowledge and understanding of how to connect with them.
  • Use intentional empathy to break down siloes within the educational culture.

2:15 pm – 4:15 pm  Inclusive Leadership 2030: Strategies and Practices for the Future Workforce

Presenter: Shirley Davis, Ph.D. President/CEO of SDS Global Enterprises, Inc.

Research suggests that by 2030 workers will be older and younger at the same time, more educated and less skilled, hyper-connected through new technologies, and more ethnically diverse. How can we ready our organizations for this new workforce reality? What new strategies, competencies, and skills will be necessary to harness the benefits, yet counter the negative effects of these global disruptions? More importantly, what new leadership models will be needed in order to achieve high performance, innovation, and inclusiveness? Dr. Davis will answer all of these questions as she details the megatrends and their implications that will shape the workforce of the future. Additionally, she will provide practical strategies that organizational leaders should employ if they expect to build inclusive and high performing workplace cultures.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the most significant demographic changes that will redefine the workforce of 2020 and 2030.
  • List the key challenges and issues that leaders face in the workplace amidst a more diverse, global, and hyper-connected world.
  • Describe the new models and mindsets that every leader must adopt in order to be more effective.
  • Identify key competencies and leading practices for creating a culture of inclusion, innovation, and high performance.
