ECIS, the Educational Collaborative for International Schools, held its annual Leadership Conference, which took place virtually this year.

Focusing on "Diversity and Belonging – the power of commonality and inclusion," the Conference took place in April over 3 days of inspiration and collaboration, during which acclaimed educators and leaders from across the world came together online to explore, discuss and make conscious decisions on Diversity and Belonging.

Key speaker Dr. Pelonis spoke about the courage to lead, offering a female approach to leadership.

During her speech, Dr. Pelonis analyzed how understanding your Personal Leadership Thread is an important concept that will provide insight and tools to leverage your authentic leadership style.

Dr. Pelonis explained that through this lens of both authentic and dynamic leadership approach, including the ideas of ‘reflective practitioners’ and Collaborative Learning Communities, emerges a framework with intentional excellence.
