The global professional network Lead 5050 seeks to raise the profile of women in the international education industry and facilitate them into positions of leadership.
Stephen Shortt is managing director of IALC accredited language school Alpha College of English in Dublin and has voiced his support for Lead5050, authoring the brilliant blog ‘Feminist father’ in which he discusses gender stereotypes.
