Connecting Women Professionals
Bringing Different Perspectives to the Table
Connect with Women who are Experts in their Field
If you’re working through a specific project or skill, you will also be connected to women who have expertise in tasks like Budget Creation, Project Management, or Marketing and Social Media. As you learn and develop your own leadership style, these women can also be a resource. If you are looking for experts with experience in areas like NAFSA Leadership, Conference Proposals, and Volunteer Organizations, Career Coaching may have your perfect match.
The goal of Career Coaching is to provide League members with access to women with specific expertise that they may not otherwise come in contact with during the course of their daily work life. Career Coaching is intended to be professional in nature, and while informational interview requests are welcome, the facilitator has full discretion to make the connection between expert and member.

Research shows that greater connectedness leads to better health, happiness and sense of community.
One of the many benefits of membership is to host a LINK event, making you a leader in our award-winning organization, showcasing your skills, deepening your networks, and adding to your portfolio of accomplishments.
Interested in learning skills online from approachable experts? If so, our webinars are for you! We offer 3-4 one hour webinars every year tailored to the skills you want most. We aim to meet you where you are, and based on the role of international educators, we know that it is not always convenient to meet in person. These webinars allow you to watch and learn in the comfort of your own office or home. The webinars will follow our themes and we will produce the best content possible with a goal of giving you take-away learning to apply to your daily work.
Anyone can view webinars for a nominal fee and members of the League will have access to the webinars for free. Consider membership in the League as a great investment in training that lasts for a year with even richer and more meaningful connections on top of the content.
Our upcoming webinars are always listed on the League's Events page of the site, so be sure to visit that page for more information!
Joan from IES Abroad said this about a recent webinar: "Thank you Global Leadership League for the opportunity to attend the webinar "Be a Hybrid Professional - Rethink what you really do" given by Sarabeth Berk. I found it to be thought-provoking and very encouraging. Sarabeth was an articulate presenter, and I always appreciate your comments as a participant. To a person working in a higher ed organization, who recently changed jobs within the same, I had not considered my hybrid-ness, and the value that brings to my new role, particularly at those intersection points. I will be taking a closer look and analyzing those aspects of my contributions as I look to enhance my role going forward."
WORKSHOPS & Events
NEW for 2019! The Global Leadership League is pleased to offer timely and high-value workshops, centered around our guiding principles: a vibrant, safe space for women to learn from each other and advance in their own careers.
Our workshop series fall under three general categories that span the entire career life-cycle and beyond:
The workshops are typically delivered in-person, in alignment with major international education events, to maximize affordability and accessibility.
Workshop trainers are seasoned intentional education professionals, many of whom volunteer their time with the Global Leadership League. We look forward to welcoming you to an upcoming workshop!
Our members come from different backgrounds, abilities, levels of experience, and parts of the world. Our goal is to embrace this diversity and encourage relationships across generations and experience levels for the benefit of all involved.
The Global Leadership League was started by a group of women in the field of international education for the purposes of advancing women’s leadership skills, knowledge, and connections.
