About the Position

The Heads Network was founded in 1920, the same year of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution giving women the right to vote. Now is an exciting time for The Heads Network.  It promotes active collaboration and professional growth for independent school heads and leaders who are committed to the education of girls and advancing women’s leadership. The Heads Network has a robust membership that includes both women and men who are strong believers in the value of promoting women in leadership roles and education for girls, as well as advancing unrepresented groups into leadership.

The Heads Network speaks to its mission in several significant ways: professional networking for all member schools; presenting the Annual Meeting, a two day event which fills to capacity each year; and hosting the Women’s Leadership Seminar.  The Women’s Leadership Seminar is held twice each year and has served over 900 women leaders. Think of the impact this professional development offering has had on school leadership since its founding 30 years ago.

The Executive Director works virtually promoting and supporting a network of over 200 school heads and administrators of both coeducational and single gender independent schools in Canada and the USA.
