Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) Alumni

PLI has been the ultimate transformational experience for my development as a social justice leader. The theoretical frameworks and discussions around equity and access provided me with resources that I could use immediately. The mentoring and encouragement have been so valuable; I owe my success as an administrator to PLI. I tell every aspiring administrator that there is no other place to do this work, UCLA PLI and nothing else!

Kenya Williams

Assistant Principal at University Pathways Public Service Academy High School

PLI established a framework of empowerment to help me become a true agent of change in the community I serve. I firmly believe that the arsenal of progressive educational theory, execution of thoughtful practice, consistent reflection, and continued support from the PLI team has developed my skills to truly become a transformative leader.
