WRIE 2020
 

  November 17-18, 2020
 

   WRIE 2020 IS GOING VIRTUAL!

 

 

 

JOIN US FROM ANYWHERE TO CELEBRATE RESILIENCE AND REFLECT ON WHAT IS RIGHT IN EDUCATION!

Current circumstances may not allow us to meet in person for our ninth annual education leadership conference, but we still have much to celebrate. As we look back at the year so far, we see a community of educators who are stronger and more resolved than ever to make sure that students have every opportunity to succeed, despite the obstacles ahead. It takes courage to face the uncertainty and willingness to unlearn some of our most successful practices and define new practices to answer important questions:

  • What’s working with our reentry plan and what isn’t?
  • How do we relieve anxiety with our team and create agility when we have to change course quickly?
  • What are the measures that matter? How do we adjust to meet those measures and successfully manage through this crisis?

Individually, we don’t have all of the answers, but together we can accomplish more, lay new ground and forge ahead.

We know you are tired and uncertain of the future. Taking time to pause, reflect and recognize the wins is vital not only for leaders to survive, but to thrive. Join us to learn from other education leaders, share the lessons that you have learned and celebrate the strides that we have made and obstacles we have overcome.

Join us virtually at WRIE 2020 to connect to purpose and learn practices and strategies that can transform your organization and strengthen your leadership skills.


PRICE: $0
This year, attendance is free for all who want to join us.
