Dr. Jasmin Bey Cowin

Currently, I am the Chief Marketing Officer for a start-up IT company, PeopleMovers®, a Community Networking Platform. As an experienced executive, both at a strategic and operational level, with strong track record in developing, driving and managing business improvement and development, change management and turn-around I worked with value-adding leadership. The main drivers have been branding, marketing and efficiency, improved customer satisfaction and retainment, customer service, product management, cross functional business improvements and development of sponsor presentations with sponsor meetings.

The Presidency of the Rotary Club of New York is dear to my heart. As the second woman to be elected in 109 years, I have a leadership role in shaping and directing the club’s programs and international strategic alliances. Part of this volunteer leadership position centers around cooperation and collaboration to do “Service above Self.” The Rotary network encompasses more than 1.3 million members worldwide. Currently, I am working on our International Breakfast Lecture series at the United Nations and a Harvey Relief event to increase visibility of the club’s Rotary branding. The International Breakfast Series is streamed live on Facebook with an audience of 5000+ international viewers. In addition, I am the US Ambassador of the Hepatitis Zero Campaign, a worldwide campaign for which I am part of the Media relations team. Through my volunteer position as the President of the Rotary Club of New York and host mother to international students from South Korea, Venezuela, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Belgium, France, China, Kazakhstan, and Italy I am extremely knowledgeable about cultural differences and sensitivities, team work, plus meaningful cooperation and collaboration within a team structure. Due to my Rotary position, there is a strong national and international network available for outreach.

As a University Pathway facilitator at EF – Education First, I conceived, designed and developed multiple portfolios of face-to-face, online and blended curricula across a variety of disciplines. For EF’s Russian branch I hold interactive Adobe Connect webinars for Russian ESL university faculty at academic institutions such as Moscow University, St. Petersburg, and Siberia with practical applicability into real-life teaching scenarios. I successfully designed, implemented and taught 21st Century courses for international students which focused on educational technology literacy, assessments, activity paths, learning objectives and content for each course with a 100% paper-free learning environment. Excellent student participation and student ratings for my courses were achieved through online collaborative tools.

Realizing that Educational and Instructional Technology are pivotal in today’s fast changing education environment I completed this August a Masters Degree in Educational Technology at the Marlboro School of Graduate and Professional Studies, Vermont, with a GPA of 4.0. During my time at Marlboro College, I studied, analyzed and applied pedagogical best practices and supporting media and educational technologies needed to successfully execute online, f2f and blended learning and marketing environments.

I am a Fulbright Scholar, who holds a Doctorate in Education from Columbia University and a Masters in Educational Technology.
