In Recognition of Women's History Month

Updated: Mar 21

March is Women’s History Month here in the U.S., and as a women-owned and WBENC-certified company, we hold this month near and dear to our hearts! We would like to offer a brief tribute to all those in our global “sisterhood” whose expertise, hard work, and camaraderie reflect the heart and mission of Bennett International.

Women comprise over 90% of our global consulting team. This impressive group represents not only former teachers and admissions directors, but also scholars, artists, volunteers, third culture kids, and mothers. Their lived experience in the education and relocation worlds allows them to bring a unique perspective and unmatched level of empathy that is so necessary to our work with families and students. To our consultants, we thank you!

Bennett’s HQ team features 16 women spanning at least six time zones. It is a rare joy when we are all together, whether in person or virtually. The mutual respect, professionalism, expertise, and laughter that characterize the daily interactions of this group are what keep Bennett moving forward. To our HQ team, we thank you!

We would be remiss if we did not recognize the legacy of our founder, Georgia Bennett, and our fearless leader, Elizabeth Sawyer. Your leadership, moral compass, grace, and care are an example to us all, and it is a privilege to work for and with you! We thank you!

We also salute our network of relocation management companies and clients, and all the women we work with regularly to problem-solve and provide our relocating families with the best possible service for their needs. To our valued partners, we thank you!

Finally, we would like to recognize the relocating families that we support, specifically the women who embrace the opportunity to move across school districts and oceans, while prioritizing and advocating for their children’s education needs amidst a million other moving parts. We also recognize the daughters in these families, and we are grateful to support the next generation of women in pursuing quality education as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime! Relocations are not for the faint of heart, and we are honored to come alongside you. To those we’ve had the pleasure of supporting, we thank you!

Empathy. Education. Guidance. Expertise. Problem Solving. Civility. We are grateful for our “sisterhood” of women who embody Bennett International and make us who we are.
