Global Leadership Week (GLW) is slated to take place April 24-28, 2017. It is a weeklong convening of virtual and face-to-face events designed to celebrate leadership through global action in K-20 education. GLW is an opportunity for education leaders to learn from one another and share practical principles in leadership, particularly within the context of an interconnected, global age. During Global Leadership Week, partner organizations, companies, universities, school districts and individual schools will design and host virtual events to showcase thought leadership. These events will be listed on a GLW calendar posted to our website and promoted accordingly to encourage attendance.
The Global Education Conference Network’s flagship events during this week will be a face-to-face, invite-only Global Leadership Summit in New York City on April 24th and the Global Education Fair, a virtual experience designed to connect educators to projects, programs and initiatives that support the development of global competencies in students and teachers.
