AAIE 2023 Global Leadership CONVERSATION 


AAIE comes together to learn, collaborate, and share to support our communities both globally and locally

Innovative Schools

Have you led your school in engaging, designing and implementing innovative solutions for a significant need, problem or challenge?  Inspire and support our international school community with your story of innovative leadership strategies and how they ensured an empowered, equitable, and supportive community. 


Within our current context as well as for the future, the focus on Social and Emotional Learning, and Equity, have become and continues to be a top priority in many schools. The need to broaden our understanding of SEL and Equity, as well as acquiring and applying skills to help us navigate the challenges within your community is vitally important. Everyone benefits from students and educators to senior leadership and board members with the ultimate goal of a thriving and healthy school community.


Governance continues to be the most discussed leadership topic across international school regions, as confirmed by ongoing AAIE surveys of school heads across five continents.  Board trustees and heads of school form the single most important team within a school. If the school head and board team are not in harmony, equitable, and productive, then all other functions across a school are compromised.
