Leadership Through Systems Change

Tuesday, September 20, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

leadership through systems change

Presented by Dr. Barbara Stock Nielsen, Former South Carolina State Superintendent
Sponsored by Girls Thinking Global

Change is a constant in our world. Anyone in leadership needs a clear vision, goals, and implementation plans that include impacts on all aspects of the system and a detailed strong process evaluation that provides feedback to assist in the ever-changing system.

In this webinar, Dr. Barbara Stock Nielsen shared lessons learned on how to implement the process of systemic change — lessons she learned in her 49 years as a teacher, administrator, and education consultant. She became the first woman in South Carolina to hold the post of State Superintendent and managed a $2.2 billion-a-year agency that served more than 1,000 schools in 91 school districts.

This webinar will be of particular interest to anyone in leadership attempting to make and institutionalize change, especially school and district K-12 leaders.
