Get to Know GCLO in 2022 – #ThisIsGCLO

Get to know more about GCLO in 2022 with our  #ThisIsGCLO campaign. One of our goals this year is to increase awareness of GCLO’s programs, resources, and services through connecting GCLO portfolios and introducing our diverse staff with the Foreign Service community. The #ThisIsGCLO campaign debuted in the GCLO Weekly newsletter and can be followed on GCLO’s Facebook page.

Meet GCLO’s Data Management Team – Our Newest #ThisIsGCLO Introduction

The Data Management team of two provides technical expertise to GCLO’s portfolios and develops strategies to improve processes and information exchange in support of GCLO’s advocacy, programs, services, and client engagement. One of the Data Management team’s goals is to make data more user-friendly and provide tools that enhance the interaction between the Foreign Service community and the available data. The team is also responsible for the twice-a-year Family Member Employment Report (FAMER), which provides an in-depth analytical report of worldwide family member employment, identifying trends and evaluating effectiveness of employment initiatives and programs from individual posts overseas.
