GLA Diversity & Inclusivity Statement

At Global Leadership Adventures, diversity and inclusivity are essential components of our mission to inspire the next generation to transform the world and their role in it.

For GLA staff and students, as well as the communities we engage with in the field, diversity is about fostering representation and providing a safe and welcoming environment for all. Similarly, inclusion is about building community and making everyone feel their voice is heard and welcome.

GLA invites teens the world over to participate in our programs regardless of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, country of origin or any other basis.

As an organization dedicated to delivering life-changing experiences to students traveling abroad, we understand the value of open dialogue and are committed to building bridges with communities around the world different than our own. Real, positive change only comes from openness, acceptance and a willingness to both embrace diversity and advocate for inclusion.

Respect is inherent in all of our interactions among students, staff and all members whose communities we serve. Respect means accepting and celebrating differences, and considering all points of view. That is the GLA way.

We’re committed to do our part to make the world a more respectful and accepting place for all.
