Careers in International Development Day
Wednesday, November 8, 2017
Villanova University, Connelly Center
We've designed this all-day event to help students identify and access careers in international development and relief and have an opportunity to learn about new developments in the field, meet professionals who are using their education and skills to creatively and effectively address related issues and needs, and get practical advice on the kind of education, skills, languages, and experience they'll need to access the opportunities in a variety of sectors related to international development.
Opening Plenary: 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. (Cinema)
“The Challenges Facing Tomorrow’s Humanitarians”
Patricia McIlreavy, Vice President, Humanitarian Policy & Practice, InterAction
Breakout Roundtables: 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. (Villanova Room)
(Starting @ 2:30 and repeating @ 3, 3:30, 4 p.m.)
Meet with professionals working in the fields of international relief and development. They’ll share their career paths, the work that they and others do, and offer career advice on how to break into the field and get a foot in the door. These are women and men who haven’t lost their vision or passion and are using their skills to further the global common good. Bring your questions!
