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.
