Becky Ausenda

Executive Director

Becky Ausenda is the founder of Bermuda Education Network and has served as Executive Director since 2010.

Becky was raised in Hong Kong and is a huge fan of Chinese culture, language and food. Prior to working in education she spent 12 years as a corporate attorney in London, Shanghai and Bermuda.

Her interest in public education began through volunteering at her children’s school and also serving on charity committees in the reinsurance industry. She left her job as an attorney to work full time for BEN and has contributed to various education initiatives including teacher professional development events with faculty from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education and assisting the Bermuda Educators Council to develop their teacher professional development policy. Under her leadership, BEN developed their Springboard Programme, Christian Thunhurst scholarship, Kattegat Sailing Programme and Horizons Programme.

In 2017, Becky took a sabbatical to obtain a Master’s degree in Education with a specialization in Language and Literacy at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education and since returning to Bermuda has continued to lead BEN’s fundraising and expansion of its teacher professional development programmes.
