Mark your calendars for ELC 2017!
Education as Empowerment
Each year, the Yale SOM Education Leadership Conference gathers over 750 education experts, practitioners, and leaders to discuss innovations in K-12 education reform. The theme of this year’s conference, Education as Empowerment, asks participants to explore the role of educational institutions and leaders in promoting economic empowerment, racial equity, and social mobility. Through panels, small group sessions, and keynotes, the conference will examine the often varying strategies districts, schools, and policy-makers have used to harness the power of students, families and communities. Speakers will discuss the complex relationships between schools and social movements, the relationship between education and life-outcomes, as well as innovative solutions designed to create lasting social change through education.
April 6-7, 2017 | New Haven, CT

About the ELC
Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference
From its modest beginnings in 2007, The Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference has grown to be a nationally recognized forum for education reform. The ELC is an annual two-day conference focused on convening the nation's leaders in education reform. Through panels, networking, conversations, and workshops, our speakers, attendees, presenters, and keynotes create a community that helps build urgency in working toward student success and system-wide progress.
The ELC is sponsored and run by the Yale School of Management Education Club. The conference is fully planned and managed by students at SOM.
The Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference exists to create a forum for leaders in education reform. We seek to create a constructive dialogue about how leadership skills applied to the education sector can be used to solve the most pressing and complex challenges in public education.
