About this Event

+ Saturday, January 11, 2020 // 9am-5pm // Los Angeles, CA hosted by Oakwood School

The risk-management workshops will be led by Bill Frederick, Founder of Lodestone Safety International, a long-time expert in the field of global education. A great chance for anyone responsible for students overseas this year or next, the training will cover field practices, travel preparation, and scenario-based exercises. Lunch is included in your registration.

Goals for the training include:

> To present a comprehensive overview of international risk management for education abroad and the spectrum of strategic practices

> To provide practical, actionable tools to assist faculty with the risk management of their study abroad programs

> To enhance faculty and staff’s ability to reduce the likelihood of health, safety and security incidents and to more effectively mitigate the harm of untoward events when they do occur


+ Friday, January 10, 2020 // 10-3pm // Los Angeles, CA hosted by Oakwood School

We will share some of the emerging trends and opportunities from the field, and will facilitate an open discussion and sharing of resources to help us all build the global programs you want for your schools. Active GEBG member schools in the region will also further dialogue around regional collaborations locally and beyond with the support of GEBG. Lunch is included.
