Offered in partnership with the New York State Association of Independent Schools.
The disruptions the global pandemic caused in every sector from education to health care to supply chain management are well documented. What is less frequently discussed, however, are the ways in which the halt of “life as we knew it” caused people to slow down, carefully examine their priorities, and find new ways to stay connected with family and friends.
Schools—and the many constituents they serve—were no different. Especially considering increased conversations about inclusivity, belonging, and accessibility, educators delved deeply into questions such as:
- What does it mean to be global citizen? A leader? An ally? A student? A girl?
- Does our mission clearly capture what we strive to do for every student within our care? Does it underpin our strategic goals and initiatives?
- How are we communicating with all members of our school community and facilitating healthy, respectful connections among and between them?
You are invited to join us on Monday, February 6, at The Nightingale-Bamford School in New York City to explore these questions and more at the ICGS-NYSAIS Educating Girls Symposium: Meaning, Mission, & Making Connections. Hear from inspiring keynote speakers, attend collaborative workshops, and learn from your peers, all of whom share your dedication to creating safe, engaging environments in which girls can learn, grow, and thrive.
