Launched in 2017, CS&A's Women's Institute supports women and their allies in the education community by creating a trusted space for personal and professional advancement and mentorship.
The goal of our Women's Institute is to contribute to the overall development and empowerment of women in all stages of their professional journeys, whether that's serving as a teacher, head of school, friend, mentor, or classroom leader, and to provide a safe space for women and their allies to discuss challenges and triumphs in the workplace and in life.
All women in education (and allies of women) are welcome. This event does not include a hiring component.
After the success of 2020's virtual event, the (Re)Institute made an exciting (re)turn for 2021.
For the month of June, we (re)developed this important event into a dynamic online professional development event featuring inspiring speakers, job search advice, thought leadership from industry experts, career advising opportunities, and more. Nearly 400 women from around the world joined us virtually to learn, share, and grow together.
As a leader in placement and search services for independent schools, Carney, Sandoe & Associates pledges itself to increasing the number of women in leadership roles as part of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We believe in the importance of this work because our schools and their students benefit when leadership teams represent a balance in terms of gender. Historically, the percentage of women represented in those teams—especially at the head of school level—has remained at an unacceptably low level (with the exception of schools for girls).
As we work with candidates, trustees, search committees, school leaders, and partner organizations, we will strive to find new ways to increase the number of women candidates and placements in traditionally underrepresented roles.
