Alexandria public schools will serve as a host site for Leadercast Women Live, which is billed as the largest one-day leadership event in the world.

Broadcast live each year from Atlanta to hundreds of sites around the world, Leadercast Live assembles globally respected leadership experts on one stage to help create better leaders.

This year's theme is "Take Courage," which organizers define as not the absence of fear, but acting in spite of fear.

The simulcast is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 18, from 7:15 a.m.-3 p.m. In Alexandria, the host location is the district office, 1410 S. McKay Ave. The $99 registration fee includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and journal, and continuing education credits are available.
