We are extremely grateful to the more than 100 women who joined us for our first-ever Women’s Institute on June 16 at the Battery Wharf Hotel in Boston. “Lean On” welcomed women in education from across the country for a day of peer learning, mentorship, and dialogue through shared experiences that was meant to advance the development and empowerment of women in all stages of their professional journey.
Featuring co-keynote speakers Lisa Lyle (Head of School, MICDS) and Becky Sykes (President, Oprah Winfrey Charitable Foundation) and a group of inspiring Honorary Faculty, the Institute facilitated opportunities for women to support each other, learn, and grow. The event included several professional development session blocks led by Faculty members and a dedicated mentorship period where small groups of participants met to discuss personal and professional challenges with their peers and a mentorship group leader.
Thank you to everyone who attended our sold-out Women’s Institute! We look forward to continuing this new venture next year.
