Registration Open for LA Educating Girls Symposium

Registration is open for the upcoming Educating Girls Symposium at Westridge School in Los Angeles on October 23, 2017. This professional development opportunity is for educators to come together and exchange best practices for teaching and working with girls.
School Communities: The Power of Many Voices will address:

  • How do the various "communities" in your school -- students, teachers, administrators, coaches, parents, alumnae, and more -- collaborate to create an environment where girls learn to find and use their voices effectively?
  • How are the mission, vision, and values of your school reflected in the development of your school community?
  • How do you ensure your school is a space for the equitable expression of differences while also encouraging inquiry, varying viewpoints, and open dialogue?
  • How does your school approach the concepts of privilege and social justice within our globally expanding world?

Philanthropic Round Table: Engaging and Educating Girls and Women to be Strategic Philanthropists
Presented by Miss Hall's School and NCGS

The Philanthropic Round Table (PRT) was established by Miss Hall's School in 1997 to raise the level of discourse on women and philanthropy. Women today are attaining advanced degrees at higher rates and have greater resources upon which to draw. As such, they are in an increasingly powerful position to make and influence philanthropic decisions.

NCGS is proud to join Miss Hall's School as a partner in hosting the 2018 Philanthropic Round Table. You will hear from, and have opportunities to join discussion groups with thought-leaders representing educational institutions, foundations, and non-profit organizations. Together, we will strategize ways to engage girls and women in becoming life-long philanthropists.

A morning panel will be followed by small break-out discussions. Registration will open in October.

Fall Session of "Introduction to Girls' Schools" Online Course for New Hires

The online course "Introduction to Girls’ Schools," offered by NCGS and One Schoolhouse, is designed as an orientation to girls' schools for newly hired faculty and administrators. Participants connect and collaborate with each other to explore best practices and research in girls' school classrooms. Learning from a panel of respected school heads, experienced teachers, and new teachers, participants are introduced to community members and leaders from around the country. At the conclusion of the four-week experience, educators have a clear sense of what it means to work in an all-girls school, understand ways teachers can create a classroom atmosphere and curriculum that maximizes how girls learn, and connect to a national cohort of girls' school colleagues.

In order for new hires to thrive and succeed at their first girls' school, it is valuable to provide them an orientation to the most effective methods for teaching girls. This course provides instructional insight to all faculty and administrators new to girls' schools, be they seasoned educators or new professionals.

Registration for the fall session being offered October 2-27, 2017, is open. Click here to register today!
