201. Wisconsin Future Ready Leadership Summit: Leveraging the Lessons Learned

After two years of forced disruption, Wisconsin school and district leaders must seize the moment and move their teams forward with intention. Leading through this current school year, we must come together to amplify and implement pandemic lessons learned with direction and purpose, while focusing on sustainability to ensure we emerge stronger post-pandemic. This SLATE Future Ready Summit will again be led by Future Ready’s Thomas C. Murray, and district leader and author Myron Dueck. Grounded in the Future Ready Framework, Murray and Dueck will help leaders come together to reframe perspectives and navigate constraints to elevate student learning outcomes. With COVID relief funding (ARP) drying up in two short years, it’s imperative that leaders focus on making the needed systemic, innovative changes now while ensuring long-term sustainability in their decision-making. 

Come join this year’s keynote speakers, Murray and Dueck, on December 5th to develop strategies to:

  • Emerge stronger post-pandemic
  • Reframe our thinking as leaders
  • Turn constraints into opportunities
  • Leverage the Future Ready Framework, as well as gain access to other free tools and resources
  • Collaborate with other WI leaders who are working to create meaningful student learning experiences in their schools and district

This workshop will provide attendees with practical ways to lead with intention to help their teams emerge stronger post-pandemic.
