Okay, but…What do I get as a member that non-members don’t have access to?

Is your organization invested in the future of leadership in international education?

The Global Leadership League was started by a group of women in international education for the purposes of advancing women’s leadership skills, knowledge and connections.

The League is focused on innovative content and universal delivery methods to engage and empower women leaders. Specifically, the League aims to provide unique content and opportunities, often bringing in speakers from other industries or in partnership with other impactful women’s organizations around the world in both an online and in-person environment.

The League activities include but are not limited to:
