During this meeting we will be treated to a discussion on the role of women in leadership positions today and, specifically, the path Ann followed along the way and the importance of technology in the future of women’s leadership development. Ann will share lessons learned and best practices in her various roles. Ann is the Undersecretary and Chief Operating Officer for the Executive Office of Education. Her responsibilities include oversight of human resources, budget, and information technology for the Secretariat, which serves three education-related state agencies- the Department of Early Education and Care, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the Department of Higher Education. In addition, Ann provides policy guidance on early education, and coordinates on policy issues with other Secretariats, primarily Health and Human Services, and Labor and Workforce Development. Ann returned to state government in 2015 after serving as a Principal consultant at ICF International since 2009, working on national technical assistance related to early education. In her prior state service, she was the first Commissioner of the Department of Early Education and Care, Senior Policy Advisor in the Governor’s Office, and State Budget Director.
This is your opportunity to hear a dynamic and influential leader share her thoughts on the role of women in technology, technology in education and technology in government. Please join us.
