NEA Minority & Women’s Leadership Training

Minority Leadership and Women’s Leadership Training Programs

The Minority Leadership and Women’s Leadership Training programs prepare early career educators and emerging leaders to be powerful advocates for their students, their profession, and their Association. The hands-on training curriculum teaches participants foundational leadership skills, the logistics of running for elected office, and how to advocate for student-centered policies and social justice issues that impact their schools and communities.
