Leadership Forum

We would like to invite the community to the 4th Annual Women’s Leadership Forum hosted by the Attallah College of Educational Studies and SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union.  This event brings together dynamic leaders from different fields to share their personal passions, the importance of collaboration and mentorship in the workplace, and career advancement advice.  The theme for this year’s conference is Breaking Boundaries.  The Annual Women’s Leadership Forum includes keynote speakers, a panel discussion with Q&A, and breakout sessions with field leaders. The event also includes a special session for members of CALSA (California Association of Latino Superintendents and Administrators).  People of all ages, genders, and backgrounds are invited to attend.  Networking opportunities are available and encouraged!

This year’s keynote speakers and panelists feature women leaders from a variety of fields, each offering to share their experience as females in their respective areas of work.  The keynote speakers are Tracy Walder, an FBI Special Agent Turned Teacher and Author and Nicole Washington, the Director of Innovation and Growth at OCTANe.  Our three panelists include Brateil Aghasi, Chief Executive Officer of WISEPlace, one of Orange County’s first communities devoted specifically to unaccompanied homeless women in transition, Martha L. Martinez, Superintendent for Salinas City Elementary School District, and Nikki SooHoo, Film and Television Actress.  Despite their diverse careers, each has the shared experience of being successful women in their fields.  They are all excited to talk about how they utilized leadership skills to get to where they are and continue to use them to excel on a daily basis.
