Before joining SAIT, Megan Glancey worked for some of the largest, and best known, retail chains in the country, including Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore and Walmart. Working closely with top executives, Glancey helped guide strategic human resources decisions, gaining a detailed understanding of how those businesses operated.
She parlayed that expertise and her passion for education into a position at SAIT where she has been a faculty member teaching in the Business Administration degree and diploma programs since 2017.
Glancey’s career has taken her around the world, starting with a six-month stay in Kenya where she studied sustainable development through Canadian Field Studies in Africa. Following her graduation from Queen’s University with a degree in international development, Glancey spent a year teaching English in Korea and later moved to Rome for a six-month internship with the NATO Defense College where she worked as assistant to the academic policy chair. From there, she began teaching English business practices at a language service company. When that company asked Glancey to begin doing human resources work, running orientations and taking part in recruitment, it set her on the path for a career in the field.
A passionate advocate for lifelong learning, Glancey went on to earn a master’s degree from Athabasca University focused on adult education.
