GG4L Partners with IMAGO to Support Workforce Readiness

Alameda, California, January 26, 2021 – Today, Global Grid for Learning (GG4L), a public benefit corporation, announces a strategic partnership with IMAGO.

 

IMAGO is a social and emotional learning (SEL) platform with a mission to prepare students with the critical skills and knowledge for workforce readiness and success.  To achieve this they provide explicit online video curricula for learners and augmented professional development workshops for educators.

 

“IMAGO offers a unique opportunity for students to gain the skills necessary for being attractive candidates in the workforce,” commented Robert Iskander, CEO and Chairman of GG4L. “Even as students develop their technical skills, they will need the ability to demonstrate high levels of EQ and executive presence and IMAGO provides these important skills.”

The initiative promotes learning environments for students in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and business education. Solutions like IMAGO are delivered through GG4L’s platform which provides a secure, industry-standard connection for schools to safely access edtech software applications.

 

“This partnership with GG4L allows us to help humans develop more emotionally intelligent thoughts and behaviors,” says Edgar Blunt CEO and co-founder of IMAGO.  “We believe that humans at their full potential, engaged and fulfilled, will be able to tackle today’s and tomorrow’s complex challenges and are grateful to start this relationship.”
