New York City Innovators Network

Facilitator: Ivy Schreiber
Format: Hybrid (includes some virtual)

About this Network:

Education Directors in the NYC Innovators Network will join together to grapple with setting new visions, building teams, gaining buy-in, and other key concepts and themes that can help direct educational programs towards an innovative future. As we learn from each other, participants will deepen their relationships among colleagues, share highlights of their work, raise issues of concern, and collaboratively create solutions. 

The New York City Network will join similar NY area networks for two of the six network meetings this year to broaden the conversation and learn with and from each other.

Additional Information:

  • This network is open to new members but requires an initial conversation with the facilitator.
  • This network is designed for congregational and independent directors of education.
  • This network will meet for some meetings in person and some virtually in 2023-24.
