2012 WFPG NY MENTORING FAIR

Wednesday, February 22nd, 6 – 9 p.m.
New York University
Kimmel Center for University Life, 10th Floor
60 Washington Sq. South, New York, NY

Women’s Foreign Policy Group Mentoring Fairs provide an opportunity for students and young professionals to meet with international affairs professionals and learn from their career experiences. Unlike a career fair, the focus is on entering and succeeding in international career fields, not just opportunities at particular companies. This year we are cosponsoring the event with New York University.

Mentors are mid- to senior-level women and men working in international affairs who want to sit down with aspiring leaders to give career guidance and practical advice. Sectors include international development, NGOs, human rights, international law, international health, international business, diplomatic service, the UN, journalism, and communications.

Join as a mentor, register as a student, or just find out more at programs@wfpg.org
