Support for Supporters (Southern California)


Tue Oct 11 2022 at 09:00 am to 02:00 pm


St. Margaret's Episcopal School | San Juan Capistrano, CA

This program is for executive assistants, administrative assistants, and anyone serving in a support role at a school!
About this Event

The position of Administrative Assistant to the Head of School or Division/Department Head, is a unique, complicated, and demanding one. This role requires a high degree of professionalism as well as a complex combination of exceptional interpersonal expertise, technology skills, and the ability to manage and monitor several projects and events simultaneously.

As this administrative support role requires maintaining a high level of confidentiality, those in it can feel particularly isolated from others in the school. This program offers a small, confidential, and welcoming environment designed to foster connections, learning, support, and dialogue with peers who share similar experiences and challenges.

We will attend to the continuously changing demands of our roles. There will be time for connecting with new colleagues across Southern California. Along with guest speakers and readings, we will incorporate time to problem solve, share knowledge and resources, request practical feedback or suggestions, or just simply laugh about our jobs.

This year's ongoing program will be in person and consist of three 5-hour workshops. Each session will focus on a different theme, with a guest speaker, and time to connect and problem solve.

Meetings will be tailored to the needs and interests of our current participants. Our first meeting will allow time to connect and get to know one another. Topics may include boundary setting, self-advocacy, delegation, leadership, tech resources, self-care, and more!
