On Monday, May 19, we had the privilege of meeting with the Director of UC International, Glenys London, for a CoffeeWISE. Glenys is a very talented woman with much life experience and we felt honoured that she would take time out of her busy schedule to share with us!
Glenys shared this visual aid with us to comment on the complex life of women:
We discussed how women today feel compelled to juggle home life with cooking cleaning, children, spouse and family along with work- often full time work.
Glenys told us that she did not actually plan her career, rather, along her career journey she grasped the next suitable opportunity as it became available. It was inspiring to hear that it’s possible to make it all the way to the director level without constantly pushing yourself to take big career jumps when you don’t feel ready. We can keep our eyes open for the next opportunity that comes at the right time and then give it our all.
