Long Island Innovators
About this Network:
Participants of the Long Island Innovators Network will grapple with setting new visions, building teams, getting buy-in, assessing past learning, and other key concepts and themes that can help direct programs towards an innovative future. As we learn from each other, participants will share highlights of their work, raise issues of concern, and collaboratively create solutions.
The Long Island Innovators Network will join similar networks that support educators in Westchester and in NYC for two of the six network meetings this year to broaden the conversation and learn with and from each other.
- This network is open to new members but requires an initial conversation with the facilitator.
- This network is designed for congregational directors of education.
- This network will meet virtually in 2021-2022.
