Global Poverty Ambassadors host professional panel

2017 Global Poverty Career Panel

The Global Poverty Student Advisory Board is hosting a nonprofit career panel to inform students about the impact nonprofit organizations have on the developing world on May 4, 2017.

Carrie Lewey, an AREC senior and a global poverty ambassador, organized the event.

“The Global Poverty Ambassadors were looking for a way to spread the word about how fantastic and diverse the minor is,” said Lewey.  “We were all also interested in learning how we can impact the world using the minor since many of us would love for it to be our major.”

Speakers at the event include Melanie Sany from the Education Development Center, Geroldine Sicot from Millennium Challenge Corporation, Diether Beuermann from Inter-American Development Bank, Pat Corrigan from Deloitte and Maggie McDonough from Souktel.

The ambassadors met several times to prepare for the panel. They created fliers, discussed potential panel ideas and created a list of questions to be asked. At the panel, speakers will discuss their field and road to success.

Lewey secured the speakers and venue, and will moderate the event.

“I’m really hoping to be inspired by their stories and to learn about new avenues for entering the job market in the nonprofit sector,” said Lewey.

The event will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Tawes Building in room 0320. To attend, RSVP at https://ter.ps/GP17Panel. Dinner will be provided.

Please contact Jill Janofsky if you would like more information about the event.
