LEADERS Institute 2020 has been canceled. After much discussion, the executive board of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges made the difficult decision to cancel LEADERS Institute 2020 to protect health and safety during the coronavirus pandemic. We had hoped that the situation would improve in time for LEADERS to continue, but there remains too much uncertainty.
AAWCC had already accepted the majority of participants before state travel restrictions increased. While LEADERS will not occur in 2020, please mark your calendar for LEADERS 2021, scheduled for June 6-11, 2021 at Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas. LEADERS Institute is hosted by San Jacinto College.We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding with these changes. We hope to see you at LEADERS Institute 2021. Please stay safe!
The LEADERS Experience
The national board for the American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) supports the advancement of community college women into leadership positions. The LEADERS Institute is a five day, content-intensive, experiential workshop, based on the AACC Core Competencies for Community College Leaders. In AAWCC, we believe that we lead from where we are, and the LEADERS Institute promotes the development of women’s leadership skills and qualities at every level in community college education and administration. The Institute is designed to prepare women leaders for career opportunities, career advancement, and executive-level leadership positions, including the presidency.
Graduates of the LEADERS Institute are recognized for their excellence in collaboration, encouragement and support for each other, their appreciation that many styles of leadership co-exist, and continuing expansion of their professional talents based on a strong personal foundation. Over the course of 37 years of successes, LEADERS Institute has established a coalition of more than 6,000 women leaders.
