TMS - Uplift/Lift Up Women In Education Leadership
  • Member School Events

In March 2023, TMS spearheaded a movement to create a network of like-minded women leaders in independent education and provide meaningful ways for women to connect, re-connect, inspire (and be inspired), feel uplifted and in turn, lift up others. Over 90 women gathered in the Lower School Atrium to hear from Tammy Heermann about Courageous Conversations. The buzz in the room was amazing as women from a number of CIS Ontario member schools connected, supported, and shared – all over delicious treats.

In April a follow-up Zoom evening was held with Lara Koretsky who had us reflect on our inner voices (that help or hinder), our leadership identity and inner leader.

Our third gathering on October 11, 2023 will bring back Lara to share (in person) the idea of saboteurs – the inner voices that get in the way of us being able to step into Courageous Conversations.

The evening will unfold as follows:

5:30–6:00 p.m. Arrival, networking, refreshments

6:00-–7:30 p.m. Lara Koretsky's talk and fun networking activities

7:30–8:00 p.m. Wrap up, final networking opportunities              

Invite a friend or colleague to this fun and engaging event. Tickets for CIS Ontario staff and educators are $35 and include delicious food and wine, exclusive WIL swag and the chance to further build your tool kit and connect with a network of other courageous women.

Tickets can be purchased at:
