Description

ELKHART COMMUNITY SCHOOLSWelcome to a Day of Intercultural Professional Development!

CREATE AND VIEW YOUR SCHEDULE HERE!

Elkhart Community Schools will host Culture Series:Thought Leadership Conference on World Day for Cultural Diversity and Dialogue. Event activities target education, business, and community leaders and will occur on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at the Lerner Theater, IUSB Elkhart, and Elkhart Chamber of Commerce in downtown Elkhart, Indiana.

The Culture Series: Thought Leadership Conference is where business, education, and community leaders intersect to BUILD A CONNECTED CULTURE. Attendees design their professional learning experience—focusing on four key themes: educational leadership, organizational culture, economic development & global business intelligence and innovation.

Thought Leadership Conference targets leaders who engage people through collective intelligence. Leaders face various demographic shifts in our region that demand college-career ready performers and agile, innovative workplaces. Today's thought leaders must join forces to attract and retain talent, create inclusive communities, and improve economic development opportunities. These are high-stake matters, and the schoolhouse is major economic driver in the community and strong indicator of where people choose to live, work, and play (McKinsey, 2018).

Who should attend the conference?

School administrators, business leaders, teacher leaders, clergy, non-profit service groups, community development authorities, and human resource professionals will be able to capture trends and apply strategies to grow professionally, motivate others, and contribute to building a connected culture by attending this conference.

Enjoy an agenda that balances your time for educational content, visits to exhibitors, meals, and rest.

American Sign Language services will be provided by Goshen College students.
