St Margaret Episcopal School Leadership and Inclusion


Published on

All Day Session delivered to student leaders of St Margaret Episcopal School and Sage Hill School. Leadership has been mythologized as a top-down, power based model that results in change through coercion and leadership oppression. What are newer ways of understanding why the most effective leaders are so effective? How does creating an inclusive community, empowering others, and acting in coalition and allyship allow us to be successful leaders and leave a legacy to be proud of?
