Women in Education Special Interest Group: Successful Leadership Transitions
As a woman in leadership, transitioning into a leadership role in a new school is complex. There are many factors to consider from the moment that you receive the offer through your first few months in the new position. In this session, a fantastic panel from our “Women in Education” special interest group will provide experience and wisdom on contract negotiations; setting up a successful transition in the months leading up to your move; tips on setting up life in a new place with a family; and how to hit your stride in your new school.
Dr. Erin Robinson (she/her) is the Head of Secondary School at Atlanta International School. Having lived most of her life in countries around the world, Erin holds a deep appreciation for the lifelong journey of intercultural competency. In addition to leading schools, Erin provides professional learning in leadership development, building highly effective teams, educational equity, culturally sustaining practices, and change management. Erin is a part of the ECIS Women in Education special education group. She also helped start the Women of Influence in Education Conference and a Facebook group to go with it. When Erin isn’t involved in all things educational, she loves spending time with her family, embarking on adventures, and curling up with a good book.
