Don’t miss out on an International Development Panel featuring alumni at USAID, Save the Children, Tetra Tech, and SIDW. International development is a vast area comprised of international nongovernmental organizations, nonprofits, US Government contractors, and various US Government agencies, focused on lifting people out of poverty and promoting civil society around the world. Washington DC is home to the headquarters of many of the leading International development organizations and there is a thriving community of professionals in and around the District.
In addition to policy roles, you can find generalist roles in operations, development, program management, finance, evaluation, as well as more technical roles supporting various sectors like education, food security, emergency response, public health, and infrastructure/shelter.

On Thursday, October 22nd from 6pm-7pm EST, a group of Boston investment professionals will host a virtual networking session to introduce students and recent graduates to the field of sustainable investing, which typically focuses on investing as it relates to environmental and social issues, as well as impact investing.
Students and recent graduates will participate in three different small group breakout discussions where an industry professional will share information about their job in finance and how ESG is integrated into their firm’s strategy.
