The Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference exists to create a forum for leaders in education reform. We seek to create a constructive dialogue about how leadership skills applied to the education sector can be used to solve the most pressing and complex challenges in public education.

From its modest beginnings in 2007, The Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference has grown to be a nationally recognized forum for education reform. The ELC is an annual two-day conference focused on convening the nation’s leaders in education reform. Through panels, networking, conversations, and workshops, our speakers, attendees, presenters, and keynotes create a community that helps build urgency in working toward student success and system-wide progress.

The ELC is sponsored and run by the Yale School of Management Education Club. Each year, 20+ Yale School of Management students work from early in the school year to conceptualize, plan, and realize the spring conference. The 2019 conference will mark our 13th anniversary.

Prior to SOM, I worked for five years at Cook Ross Inc., a diversity and inclusion consulting firm based in Washington DC. There, I worked with Fortune 500 companies, institutions of higher education, government agencies, health care systems, and non profits to create inclusive cultures and organizations. I am excited about exploring how the philanthropic world seeks to address issues of community, identity, leadership, culture, and inclusion both in the United States and abroad. Aside from helping to organize this year’s Yale Philanthropy Conference, I serve as the first year Equity and Inclusion Officer in Student Government and co-founded ‘& Society,’ a weekly community forum where we discuss social questions and how we live into Yale SOM’s mission to educate leaders for business and society.
