The Harry Potter Alliance’s PresidentAndrew Slack, will be the Keynote Speaker at the Granger Leadership Academy this October!

Granger Leadership Academy is the HPA’s first annual leadership conference designed especially for HPA Chapters — including Chapter Organizers and all chapter members. Our conference, held October 17 to 19, 2014, is designed to bring our greatest leaders together in one place and allow them to establish strong connections with each other, share ideas, learn from our talented Chapters Staff, and emerge well-equipped to lead their community to a more just and magical future. Of course, this will be no ordinary leadership conference, as all programming and activities will be injected with the spirit of our most cherished stories. Whether most inspired by Hermione’s community organizing chops or Neville’s ability to stand up for what’s right regardless of the risk, attendees will be given the tools to become the heroes of their own narrative!

Check out the Facebook event page to learn more.

The HPA Chapters Program is running a leadership conference, and we’ll be engaging in an IRL version of We Are The Districts! If you’ve enjoyed following and contributing to this blog, you should consider attending Granger Leadership Academy. We’d love to see you there!

Too often stories that examine family planning, adolescent exposure to HIV/AIDS, reproductive health and access to primary education for girls are considered soft news. Features routinely relegated to “Special Topics” or the SundayOutlook and Style sections.
