International Women's Day

Global Experiences | March.08.2017

It’s March 8 and we’re celebrating International Women’s Day here at Global Experiences!

Our company was co-founded by a woman, Emily Merson, and her partner Stephen Reilly in 2001. To date, Global Experiences (GE) has placed over 6,000 students in 11 global cities. More than 75% of the 30 person staff are female, and so are our interns.

Executive Order Opposes Core Values of International Education

As a Co-Founder & President of Global Experiences, an international education company, and the former Executive Director of the Fulbright Association, the official alumni organization for the US State Department’s flagship Fulbright exchange program, I typically take a diplomatic approach in the face of conflict or disagreement in an effort to respect and understand all perspectives. In these roles, I am charged with representing the views of my team, our members, customers, and a broad range of stakeholders so I try to be careful with sharing my personal views on most issues, especially political ones.
