How to Connect Online with Global Leaders

Global Leadership Week (GLW) is a weeklong convening of virtual and face to face events designed to celebrate leadership through global action in K20 education. It will take place April 24-28, 2017. GLW is an opportunity for education leaders to learn from one another and share effective principles in leadership, particularly within the context of an interconnected, global age.


GLW is designed for students, teachers, teacher educators, non-profit personnel and those in the corporate world. We seek to empower leaders in these communities. During Global Leadership Week, partner organizations, companies, school districts and individual schools will design and host virtual events to showcase thought leadership. These events will be listed on a GLW calendar posted to our website. Our event hashtag is #globaled17 and you can follow conversations about GLW on Twitter.
