Women’s History Month: A Time for Celebration and Reflection

Lana founder and CEO celebrates Women’s History Month this March by reflecting on key women leaders in education and the workforce.

As we welcome Women’s History Month, the Lana Learn team is celebrating the significant role of women in education and the workforce.

Educational Leaders

Women have made remarkable strides in education over the past two decades. In 2020, 47% of women in the United States held a bachelor’s degree and higher, compared with 11% in 1970 (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). This leap is not just a data point. It signifies a profound shift towards a more inclusive and diverse environment, where women are key players in shaping the future.

Workplace Champions

Women are also increasingly stepping into management and professional roles. In 2020, 52% of these professional roles were held by women. However, women earn 82% of what men do on average (Pew Research Center) as of 2022. Compared to 2002, when women earned 80% as much as men, this is a reminder of the work that still needs to be done.

Spotlight on our Team’s Women

The data tells a compelling story, but it’s the women on our team who bring it to life. They show up daily to share their expertise, creativity, and leadership to power our collective success.

The women on the Lana team are part of the driving force behind our programs in Washington, DC and Vietnam. We have women in program management in both our 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) program and OSSE High-Impact Tutoring (HIT) initiative. Additionally, we have women working on the ground in DC providing not only test prep but also inspiration for both students and teachers. Women are leading operations in Vietnam through implementation of our US Air Force-funded English Language Training (ELT) program. These industrious women ensure success for both our students and partners.

This March, as we mark Women’s History Month, we salute the women at Lana Learn. Here’s to valuing their impact on our shared future.
