Every Fall, the BCPVPA hosts Leading the Way: Women in Leadership, an event that celebrates BC women and their leadership in education, featuring compelling keynote speakers and the unparalleled company of cherished colleagues.

In December 2020, we were pleased to mount a virtual event that invited our members and their friends to settle in on their couches to listen to a conversation between celebrated educator Linda Kaser and BCPVPA’s Elizabeth Bell about women in educational leadership roles: the influences on their leadership, the measures of their impact as leaders, the challenges they face and the elusive quest for balance. 

In the second part of the evening, we heard from our leadership panel — Ranjit Bains, Kathy Pantaleo, Lynne Tomlinson and Tara Zielinski — in a frank and open discussion of their own experiences, and what sustains them as leaders. We look forward to our next opportunity to gather and share with our colleagues.
