Development cooperation includes the set of actions, carried out by private and public actors with the purpose of promote global economic and social progress.
On November 12, organizations related to this sector participated in the International Development & Social Impact Talent Forum, organized by IE Talent & Careers. In total, ten different organizations participated: Organization for Security and Cooperation for Europe (OSCE), International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Creas, U.N. Secretariat, Bridge for Billions, Impact Hub, The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Welever and World Bank Group.
During the Forum, the students enjoyed the opportunity to join the presentations of five of these organizations: OSCE, Creas, ICRC, UN and IDB and meet their representatives personally. Furthermore, the Networking Hub was constantly busy between 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.
This event gave a rich insight to IE students about the global opportunities available in the field and the chance of seeing ourselves as social workers, generating a collective and global humanitarian deep impact on the lives of the members of our society.
As Denise Brouchy, IE Master in Management 2019 Candidate, mentioned “It is a great opportunity for meeting people not only from recognized organizations, also for meeting people who work for help people and can tell us how is the day to day in the organization”.
Finally, these forums are very popular among students because it gives them the possibility to learn more about the different companies and the opportunity for connecting directly with enterprise recruiters.
