VENTURES

Jobs in Education is an employment job board bringing together employers and candidates who are seeking a career within the education sector. The company assists clients with their recruitment needs and works with school boards, private schools, international recruiters, colleges and universities. Since operating Jobs in Education in 2004, Rumeet altered the business model to work towards two bottom lines: profit + social impact. By doing so, she has been able to contribute to initiatives that improve access to and the quality of education in Africa, North America and South America.

Viewpoint Leadership provides learning, training and development through the delivery of programs, courses, workshops and keynotes. The curriculum is grounded in the 3 U’s (understanding yourself, understanding others and understanding context), and focuses on leadership, communication and emotional resiliency. In the first year of operations, over 50 workshops were delivered across industries in North America. Viewpoint Leadership also became 1 of 60 global training partners with Multi-Health Systems and provides certification training for use of the EQ-I 2.0 and EQ 360 assessments.
