Together the African Studies, Global Studies, and Russian/East European Studies Centers are organizing a career networking trip to Washington D.C. on February 20-21, 2020. Students will meet with experts and alumni in various fields in order to learn about different career opportunities and gain an insider’s perspective on the different organizations in Washington, D.C. Meetings will be arranged into four different content areas:

• Global Health
• Human Rights/Human Security
• International Security and Diplomacy
• International Development

Along with scheduled meetings at consulting firms, think tanks, non-profits, and government agencies there will be a reception to meet UCIS and Pitt alumni. Pending funding, up to forty students will be selected to go with representation from all the centers.
