Working in Development Forum 2019

Tuesday 19 February 2019

 

All DEV students are welcome to join this year's Working in Development Forum, an opportunity to meet development practitioners and UEA graduates working in various sectors, including climate change and the environment, media and communications, gender, impact evaluation, humanitarian work and health. 

The forum is the main annual careers and employability event here in the School of International Development and offers an opportunity for students to hear speakers from a variety of NGOs, Government bodies and charities. In this past we have had alumni from DFID, the United Nations, The Red Cross, BBC Media Action, WWF, UNEP-WCMC, itad, The Girl Effect and more, who have shared their insights on their career paths and trends relevant to the sectors they work in.

The event will be an afternoon of informal panel discussions led by development practitioners, sharing insights from their own career journeys and discussing current trends relevant to working in particular sectors, including:
- Impact Evaluation
- Humanitarian Response
- Environment and Development
- Education and Development
- Media and Development
- Gender and Development

This is a great opportunity for all students to meet practitioners, including recent DEV graduates, working in international development and we look forward to seeing you there.

 

More details will be available in due course.
