I couldn’t be more excited to announce a new speaker series for FallA that GIH has been helping organize along with two Acumen Fund Alumni, David Lehr and Jocelyn Wyatt. The speaker series is titled: Enterprising Solutions: Market-Based Approaches for Reducing Global Poverty.
You can read all about the class including the specific topics and speakers for each week. This class is going to be an excellent forum to discuss and learn about these newer market-based approaches to development. My goal is to make the class as inter-disciplinary as possible by inviting students from across the campus to join the debate and dialogue about these topics. We want to use this class to help students meet others who are interested in these same areas, regardless of their discipline.
This speaker series is the result of a partnership between GIH and two excellent ambassadors to this field: David Lehr and Jocelyn Wyatt. David and Jocelyn have volunteered their time to lead lectures at the beginning of each class and used their fantastic network to recruit some top-notch speakers! I can’t thank them enough for their dedication to making this class happen.
I look forward to seeing you in class!
