Connecting Beyond the Circle



Exceeding Expectations in Education:
Spotlight on Creativity, Innovation, and Radical Strategies

Monday, November 13 
Wilson Teaching & Learning Center 
2710 E. 11th Street, 
Tulsa, OK 74104 
4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

(Childcare, afternoon snacks, and adult refreshments provided.)

Join other WLC members and educators for an inspiring evening of what’s right in education. The headlines may be bad, but there’s good news of people, programs, collaborations, and agencies showing positive results from creative solutions.

Featured presenters from CAP Tulsa, Greenwood Academy, Memorial Junior High, Street School, and Union will inspire attendees with ways we are improving education for students from pre-K into college. Partners agencies and community collaboratives will also be on hand with ways we can get more engaged -- from STEM math mentors to anti-bullying interventions, and from early childhood development to preventing teen pregnancy -- and more.

Come toast our education innovators, and learn how we can continue to support and strengthen education and our economy.

Space is limited. Register today.
This event is now open to all WLC members
regardless of giving level.

The Women’s Leadership Council is proud to introduce the new Connecting Beyond the Circle series, an expansion of our popular Connecting Circle series. While Connecting Circles are intimate gatherings for 6-12 women at the homes of some of our community’s top business leaders, Beyond the Circle events feature female leaders at sites that can host larger groups.

Additionally, Connecting Beyond the Circle will be offered to all WLC members registered as giving $500 or more annually to the Tulsa Area United Way. To confirm your giving information is correctly logged, please or refer to the form on the right.

The objective of this series is to provide members with opportunities to further develop their personal, professional, and community building skills with cutting edge topics. Attendees can still look forward to networking, mentoring advice, and professional development opportunities as well. 



 An Economic Case for STEM

 Advocacy 101 Boot Camp: How One Person Can Make a Difference
More than 40 WLC members and guests attended the most recent Connecting Beyond the Circle, Advocacy 101 Boot Camp: How One Person Can Make a Difference, for a discussion on how to effectively engage and advocate at the local and state level for laws and policy objectives. Pictured are, from left, Lisa McLarty, WLC Education Committee Chair; Amber England, Executive Director of Stand for Children Oklahoma; Suzanne Schreiber, Tulsa Public School Board of Education vice president and District 7 representative; WLC Chair Susan Crenshaw; and TAUW Affinity Group Manager Kate Starr. Our facilitators used examples of how to influence decisions on education in our city and state, but the tools they provided will translate to whatever issues we might seek to influence.
