Careers in Global Development: Mark Frohardt

February 28, 2017 • 12:00 – 1:30 pm EST

A monthly series featuring career professionals in the development field

“Careers in Global Development” is a monthly series featuring U.S. senior-level, multilateral and NGO officials who have worked in the field of development for at least twenty years. The series is aimed at young professionals who are interested in working in development and will include a one-hour dialogue on both the specific expertise of the speaker, as well as the career path and influences along the way. It will focus on specific areas of interest, including the role of humanitarian assistance in development and U.S. foreign policy; development as a tool to counter violent extremism; and sectoral issues such as food security, health, and education.

Please note that your RSVP is NOT necessary should you be attending the virtual webcast. Please arrive promptly for lunch so we may begin on schedule.
