The ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) Emerging Leaders program contains a diverse group of educators who have been in education for 5 to 15 years and have made an impact as leaders in their schools, districts, and communities. Emerging leaders gain access to networking and learning opportunities and are prepared for future leadership roles, including opportunities within ASCD.

"ASCD celebrates outstanding young leaders in education through its Emerging Leaders program," ASCD Senior Director for Constituent Services Walter McKenzie said. "Especially in these transformational times, supporting our next generation of leaders is critical to their success and the success of public education."

Members of the new class are invited to participate in multiple opportunities, including invitation-only convenings, writing for ASCD publications, and leading groups in the ASCD Professional Learning Community. Emerging leaders are also able to explore several leadership pathways within ASCD, and alumni from the program have become ASCD authors, faculty members, and board members.
