Global Links

The Global Links program is a public private partnership founded in 2011 between the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Global Women’s Issues, Rollins College, and Tupperware Brands.

What is Global Links?

Global Links is a cross-cultural exchange program designed to expand women's entrepreneurship in developing countries through a "train-the-trainer" model. Each cycle, the program sponsors a female scholar to complete three phases between the U.S. and her home country. The first phase is a six-month intensive business and social entrepreneurship training conducted at Rollins College and Tupperware Brands. After this training, professors return to their home country and integrate their new business education curriculum at their university and local community.

The Global Links program and its scholars contribute to upholding the overall Rollins mission to develop global citizens through education and community building.
