Sweet Briar College president Meredith Woo will speak at The Heads Network 2018 annual conference on March 5 in Savannah, Ga.
The Heads Network is comprised of 200 school heads and administrators of independent schools in the U.S. and Canada, engaged in active collaboration and professional growth as leaders who are committed to the education of girls and advancing women’s leadership.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Navigating Leadership: At the Helm, On the Deck, In the Lifeboat!” It is intended to be a forum for discussing innovation, trends, and peer reflection in a collegial atmosphere of diversity and intimacy.
In December, Sweet Briar’s faculty voted in a new core curriculum focused on women’s leadership. This new approach to delivering general education is designed to meet the demand for 21st-century relevancy. The leadership curriculum will be effective beginning with the fall 2018 semester and has been heralded in publications like Forbes and The Chronicle of Higher Education as a new model for liberal arts education.
