The global higher education sector is at a crossroads, seeking to integrate the ‘best of’ traditional pedagogies and pathways while adapting to critical issues already in play, such as virtual learning, climate change and gender and racial bias.   

You are invited to join Georgetown University graduate students to learn from respected women leaders who have contributed to global higher education through diverse roles, from university leadership to consulting, research, writing, non-profit and entrepreneurial ventures. They will share key insights on navigating their leadership journeys, how they contributed to transformative change and will bring vision to how we each contribute in reigniting global education in a post pandemic world. 

Hosted by: John S. Lucas, President and CEO, ISEP Study Abroad and League Advocate Partner

Moderator: Sarah E. Spencer, OnPoint Global Strategies & Coaching & the Global Leadership League
