Event description

Description

The Policy Leadership Academy (PLA) is a two-day, invitation-only workshop that brings together a select and diverse group of mid-level policy and advocacy leaders. Over the course of the program, participants will engage in leadership development and skills-based learning, while building their network of peers and connections to senior-level leaders. The goal of PLA is to aid LEE members in:

  • Deepening their knowledge of key education policy issues and solutions that support Restorative Justice practices;

  • Refining key skills for effective policymaking and advocacy work, including developing a comprehensive advocacy plan, building a strong coalition, and effective communication and negotiation skills

  • Applying an inclusive mindset in their work, teams and organizations for the purpose of dismantling historical and current forms of oppression;

  • Deepening their commitment to the experiences and leadership of the students, families and communities they serve; and

  • Their commitment to taking action and supporting their peers in addressing current challenges or opportunities in their work.


The theme for this year’s PLA, through which learning will occur and skills will be grounded, is Restorative Justice. Participants will build policy- and advocacy-skills while learning about policies and initiatives aimed at bolstering resources to support behavioral-intervention programs, and dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline.
