The power and beauty of networking lie in the genuine connections we make with others, celebrating each of our authentic selves. By embracing one another in a common mission to serve our nation’s diverse children, uplifting one another in this important journey, and in paying it forward, one can truly appreciate what it means to lead in community.

In order to fully realize the benefits of networking, it is essential to participate in events that foster connections. We encourage you to mark your calendars for our upcoming flagship event, the When Women Lead education summit. Taking place in Vancouver, Washington on June 20-22, 2024, this summit will bring together women leaders for three empowering days of learning, camaraderie, women supporting women, and expanding your network. Join us and celebrate the power of networking!

Dr. Kimberlee Armstrong, Deputy Superintendent of Evergreen Public Schools in Washington, attended When Women Lead in 2023 and had this to say about the importance of networking and connection.

“We know that many of us are from cultures where we move as a collective, we find energy, and we find strength from that collective. And sometimes, that collective tends to exist in our personal life. So how amazing is it to have professional networks where that collective is strong and thriving, and even better, being a part of it.”
