Information about the panel:
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.
