Brescia prepares women to lead by providing an education that encourages women to fulfill their potential and positively impact the world around them. Making this possible takes more than outstanding faculty, dedicated staff, and impassioned students. It takes donors who understand the significant impact of a Brescia education. It takes you.
You want to change the fact the girls around the world are denied access to education. You want to change the fact that female leaders continue to be underrepresented and unequally compensated in all stages of their careers. In fact, in 2008, Canadian women working full-time, full-year, earned only 71% as much as their male counterparts. You want to change this. You can change this. You will change this.
With your support, Brescia can continue to do what it does best—prepare women to lead in all aspects of life by providing the most accessible and high quality university education to women from London and around the world.
