2022 international women's day - how do you help others rise?

To help celebrate the 2022 International Women's Day, we asked our members and partners to tell us how they help others RISE.  We were astounded at the amazing submissions and the inspiration to be supportive to our colleagues.  We randomlly selected FIVE entries from the week and announced them in our social media.  These entries received a highly coveted pair of Wonder Women socks and a FREE gift membership for themselves or a friend.

WOMEN IN EDUCATION AWARDS & LeadERSHIP SUMMIT – Saturday, 2 November 2019, Berlin

The Global Leadership League partnered with Lead 50/50, our sister organization within language travel, to host the Women in Education Awards (WIE) and Leadership Summit.

The WIE Awards recognized and celebrated the achievements and contributions of inspirational women, gender non-conforming individuals, men and organizations in the field of international education.

The inaugural WIE Leadership Summit was an afternoon of networking and idea-sharing with professional development sessions, The League’s Making Tough Choices when Everything is Important Forum, and an interactive panel discussion to integrate learning.

The PIE news Awards

The League is honored to share that we were named the winner of the prestigious "PIEoneer of the Year Award" at the PIE Awards in London on September 8, 2017. It was a wonderful night of celebrating achievements across the field of international education.

The PIEoneer Awards recognize organizations and individuals who demonstrate their commitment to improving some facet of the international education industry.

The Global Leadership League was nominated because of our desire and work to solve significant gender challenges in the field. In our first year, we had over 1200 expressions of interest, hosted three sold-out events, and offered our first webinars. We are committed to offering leadership skills training and mentoring.

A big thank you to PIE and congratulations to the rest of the winners and finalists!   To browse through pictures from this amazing event, visit the League's Facebook page.
