About the Webinar

Dignitas empowers educators by developing leaders who will transform opportunities for the next generation. In 2018, they are working with 30 schools and 140 school leaders. Dignitas operates in informal settlements across Nairobi, rural communities and across Kenya’s borders in South Sudan. They partner with schools for a one to two year period, providing an intensive 3-week Leadership Training Institute, ongoing coaching, tailored professional development workshops and infrastructure support.

About the Global Schools Forum Webinar Series

Global Schools Forum organises regular webinars where we engage with interesting people from across the non-state education sector to share their knowledge and lessons learnt with the GSF community.

In this series, we invite our partners to lead webinars on school leadership – how to support it, how to develop it and how to ensure quality. What are the innovative models that people are using to ensure they are investing in their school leaders? How are they able to do this at scale? What are the challenges and successes? And are there opportunities to learn, share and collaborate?

If you have any ideas for future webinars, would like to host one, or would like to provide us with feedback, please contact Keya Lamba, GSF Knowledge Manager, keya.lamba@globalschoolsforum.org
