Fulbright Recipient Charlene Glenn to Present at US State Department’s Academy of Women Entrepreneurs in Barbados

PHILADELPHIA – Dr. Charlene Glenn, a business professor at Peirce College, has been selected by the US Embassy in Barbados to lead an online discussion at the embassy’s Academy of Women Entrepreneurs this month.

Glenn, of Conshohocken, Pa., will lead the presentation, “Business Continuity: Resilience in Times of Crisis,” which is scheduled to take place on Nov. 17 via Zoom.

“I am honored to participate in the Academy of Women Entrepreneurs and look forward to facilitating this virtual session with women entrepreneurs from Barbados,” said Glenn, who earned a Fulbright Award earlier this year to teach students in Barbados about innovation in business, creative thinking and disruptive technologies. “Our discussion will focus on crisis management skills, developing a business continuity plan and developing an innovative mindset.”

The Academy for Women Entrepreneurs – currently in its second year in Barbados – was launched by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs to support the growth of women entrepreneurs around the world. The program is designed to empower women to fulfill their economic potential, creating conditions for increased stability, security, and prosperity for all. The target is to reach 50 million women by 2025 by promoting an enabling environment that reduces barriers and facilitates women’s participation in the economy.

Glenn joined Peirce in 1998 and has served as a faculty member in the college’s Business division since 2000. She specializes in online and hybrid course development and delivery; curriculum design; instruction in business with a focus on leadership, ethics, management, entrepreneurship, strategic planning and human resource management; learning outcomes and assessment; accreditation reporting; soft skills development; and agile principles and methodology.
