Date & time
Many young people are interested in a career working on some of the toughest challenges facing our world. Thousands volunteer in development organisations across the country, and development studies and international relations are among the most popular undergraduate university courses in Australia. Working in a field that aims to make a difference is no doubt appealing, but it can be tough for students to know where to start.
This public seminar, hosted by the Development Policy Centre and the ANU Aid and Development Learning Community, gave students the opportunity to hear from those working in the development sector and to ask questions. Panelists have had diverse careers in government, NGOs, the private sector, and as volunteers.
• Ms Kath Taplin Senior Development Manager, Femili PNG
• Mr Nat Burke Policy Adviser, Advocacy & Justice for Children, World Vision International
• Mr Peter Russell Project Manager, International Development Assistance, GHD
• Ms Alison Chartres Assistant Secretary, Development Policy and Education Branch, Development Policy Division, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
This public seminar was presented by the Development Policy Centre at Crawford School of Public Policy and the Aid & Development Learning Community, the Australian National University.
