About this event

  • 2 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

This professional learning community is an opportunity for leaders of color in independent schools in California and the Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS) to reflect on and aspire forward in their journeys as leaders. For experienced, emerging and questioning leaders of color at all stages of their careers, this Winter-Spring 2023 series will offer participants time and support to:

  • Clarify their values, visions and goals as leaders
  • Identify their core leadership “gots” and “growth edges”
  • Plan forward for their own professional growth
  • Build and deepen vital personal and professional relationships

With the intention of knowing and sustaining ourselves in our careers, we will lean into case studies; reflect on our own experiences; talk frankly about the challenges, opportunities and expectations for leaders of color; recognize our personal growth edges; and drill down on the skills and knowledge we have and need to thrive on our diverse professional paths.

Open to returning and new participants, this leadership professional learning community is for educators of color who want to be effective, transformative and ever-growing in their work. These working conversations will include all aspects of who we are as leaders and the complexity of the communities in which we work.

We have reserved a block of rooms at The Laurel Inn located in San Francisco if you are traveling from out of town for the social event and in-person session at San Francisco University High School. The room rate is $258 per night/plus tax and is not included in program cost. To receive this rate when booking your stay use the code G-CTDC.


CATDC and San Francisco University High School will be working together to do all we can to ensure your health and safety during our one in-person session, monitoring closely nationwide, state, and local updates and recommendations. We ask that you do not attend if you are infected with Covid, have Covid symptoms, or have had close contact with someone who is infected in the last 10 days.

All participants of in-person programming need to be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines and show a copy of their COVID-19 vaccination card (with booster or boosters) before attending. A host school may require additional protocols which we will communicate to you as soon as possible.

Given the nature of our in-person programs which gather individuals together from a variety of schools and regions, CATDC may also require or strongly recommend masking indoors and/or testing on a program-by-program basis.  Any updated recommendations or requirements will be communicated to participants in a timely fashion prior to a program or session.   All Covid-related refund requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation.





Life happens. We understand that there will be times when you cannot attend a workshop that you have registered and paid for. Registration may be transferred to a different person up to 7 days before a session. However refunds will not be given, and a session missed for any reason will not be refunded.

Below we have outlined our cancellation and refund policy, which we have in place to ensure the most accurate numbers when we secure well in advance locations, catering, and facilitators. Thank you for understanding.

For our ongoing programs or one-day intensives, refunds are available (less a $50 processing fee) up to 22 days before the scheduled starting date. We are unable to provide refunds for cancellations made 21 days or less prior to the first day of a workshop. A missed session that is part of an ongoing program is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Please contact us by email as soon as you know you cannot attend a workshop.

You will receive a full refund if CATDC chooses to cancel this event.
