The SEXES Working Together Towards A Brighter Future
SC GEOS LP Supports Global Women in International Education
The men and women, company-wide, of SC GEOS Languages Plus are proudly joining as members of GLOW ED. GLOW ED’s mission is to create an organization that engages and empowers women at all levels of global education by providing a platform for dialogue, networking and mentorship. GLOW Ed is committed to fostering the advancement of women in the field, creating more business opportunities for women and supporting disadvantaged women in countries around the world.
Here is what some of our people across the globe wanted to share:
President & CO-Founder of Sprachcaffe GEOS Languages Plus, Alberto Sarno, speaks about how he is proud to be part of the gender equality movement in education, in his own company and at home: “As a father, a son, a brother, a partner and a colleague of strong women, it goes without saying that I am a proud supporter in several global initiatives fostering the advancement of women in all aspects of the work place and in my personal life. There is a lot of denial about sexism and an ugly connotation on the word feminism that is still present in the world, we need to work together to fix this.”
OTTAWA: Niall Campbell – School Director: “I’ve always found a strong core of female staff members in any ESL school I have visited, and that is certainly reflected in SC GEOS schools. As we seek to be better global citizens, we should always be mindful of the benefits and strengths that come from a balanced mix of genders and nationalities”.
NEW YORK CITY: Evgeniya Stoyanova – School Director: “In our school in New York we offer equal opportunities to all our team members and students. This is probably a very specific topic to New York - a mix of nationalities, diverse backgrounds, breathtaking life stories, and outstanding people. Gender is no longer a key factor in determining who you are, what you are worth, what paths to choose, and what horizons to meet”.
BOSTON: Ekaterina Antonova – School Director: “Education seems to have a lot of women in it, so I would say it feels like a safe space to work and develop one’s career. Being a female representative of SC GEOS Languages Plus, I can say that the place feels not only safe, but also encouraging and supporting of women, and having strong female leaders in managing positions in the company contributes to that.” ......
