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.

What does comprehensive sexual education look like in today’s day and age?
This panel will seek to answer questions including:
  • How might sexual education in elementary, middle, and high school change as a result of the #MeToo movement? 
  • In what ways has the way we think and talk about gender norms, identity, and consent changed over the last decade? 
  • In what ways can we educate our students to better prepare them to engage in safer, healthier conversations and behaviors?
