We’re pleased to announce that insendi, a Study Group company, will partner with non-profit organisation We Speak Science to provide online programmes aimed at learners from disadvantaged backgrounds, refugees, and people displaced by the war in Ukraine.

Bringing together world-class professionals from top institutions and industries across the world including professors, research scientists, and lecturers, We Speak Science is committed to raising awareness of science globally, with a passion for educating the next generation of scientists. The organisation facilitates a diverse multicultural environment for learners, supported by an ability to educate online, using recorded lectures, live classes and online synchronous workshops.

Programmes will include Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics (STEAM), developed with scientists and academics trained from Ivy league universities including the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, Harvard University, Yale University, and NASA.

Dr. Detina Zalli, Co-founder and President of We Speak Science comments:

“We are absolutely delighted to partner with insendi, who have enthusiastically embraced our mission of assisting migrants and students of disadvantaged backgrounds. We Speak Science has supported ethnic minority students since 2014, and it has been inspiring to see our students grow and achieve excellence.

“Coming from Albania, I have always been inspired by Mother Teresa's work and We Speak Science will continue to provide educational services to all students in greatest need”.

The move was also warmly welcomed by Emma Lancaster, Chief Executive of insendi’s parent company, Study Group:

“We are delighted to announce this new collaboration with We Speak Science which undertakes such inspiring and important work to support access to education, working with world leading scientists, engineers and researchers. Study Group has long been committed to values of inclusion and making a better world through education, and we are excited about the opportunities digital innovation in education offer to help make this ambition a reality.”
