Transnational NGO Initiative Presents: Collaboration and Management: Expatriates and Host Country Nationals in Transnational NGOs

So you’ve landed your dream job at an international non-profit: How do you work most productively with your colleagues? Ensuring a healthy work environment amongst work colleagues is important in development programs. However, often power dynamics and lack of cultural understanding may prevent constructive collaboration between national and expatriate staff.

The panel of NGO practitioners (who may also happen to be your classmates!) will address practitioner experience in maneuvering within the power structures of transnational NGOs and will give sound advice in resolving recurrent issues within management of transnational NGOs.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
