Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of joining the Circle of Women’s 2021 Panel on Women’s Education presented by the Brown University chapter. The above clip features panel moderator Pamela Reeves and me as we discuss GEC’s paradigm of supporting local change makers’ efforts to create critical educational opportunities for girls. I emphasize that as an organization, we function as an ally to local visionaries by providing needed resources and technical support and cite our current partnership with the Immaculate Heart Sisters of Africa as an example.

Additional panelists included Dr. Sherryl Broverman of WISER International, Nermien Riad of Coptic Orphans, and Ingrid Sánchez Tapia of UNICEF. It was moderated by Pamela Reeves of Kakenya’s Dream and Brown University.

A big thank you to our hosts Caterina Prestia and Maddie Savage, the co-presidents of Brown University’s Circle of Women chapter.
