with Amber Wigmore Álvarez
Executive Director of Career Services
We’ve always heard of International Organizations such as UNICEF, World Bank Group, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the World Food Programme, or Inter-American Development Bank. They are all key catalysts to development, sustainability and world emergency relief as they share a common mission to provide solutions to challenges and threats, some known and some unpredictable, to mankind. During this Journey, along with special guests with a solid career trajectory in the industry, Esther Rodríguez-Fernández (IDB), and Antonio Salort-Pons (WFP), we discover operational traits of International Organizations, such as how they define priorities during a crisis and leverage efficiencies, but we also learn industry insight, as well as how they are demanding new sets of skills in professionals. Despite a light shift towards innovative profiles, one requirement seems to never change: a passion and vocation for humanitarian causes and development.
