California Community Colleges Change Leadership Summit—Fall 2017:
Exchanging ideas, exploring new concepts,
October 5-6, 2017
If your college is looking to capitalize on its local talent and foster leadership development to take student achievement to a higher level, we encourage you to gather a cross-functional team of experienced and emerging leaders to explore new concepts about leading large-scale change at your college. Join us for rich discussions, shared ideas, and provocative questions that will enhance our collective capacity to address student achievement and equity gaps. Together, we will:
1. Develop approaches, mindsets, and tools that enhance local leadership efforts.
2. Assess challenges and opportunities for collective system leadership within and across our institutions.
3. Identify and explore leadership demands for undertaking whole systems change.
This will be the first in a series of convenings sponsored by IEPI to support California Community Colleges dialogue and change leadership development.
On Thursday, October 5, registration will open at 11:00 a.m., lunch is at 12:00 p.m., and the first day will conclude at 5:00 p.m. On Friday, October 6, breakfast is at 7:00 a.m. and the summit will conclude at 2:30 p.m.
Who Should Attend?
Cross-functional teams within colleges composed of administrators, faculty, classified staff, and researchers. College teams may already be working on projects or initiatives focused on eliminating equity and achievement gaps, or planning to engage in other transformational change efforts soon. Participation is limited to 8 attendees per college.
Chancellor Eloy Oakley
Chancellor Oakley will discuss the Strategic Vision for Success and what this means for leaders in the Chancellor’s Office and the field. Participants will have an opportunity to hear Chancellor Oakley’s thinking about the whole system change approach necessary to implement this vision.
John Kania, MBA; Global Managing Director, FSG

Capacity Building Toolkit:
Summit participants will be introduced to several tools that support a systems approach to leadership and change.
Dedicated Team Time:
