WE ARE A GROUP OF PROFESSIONALS CURRENTLY WORKING ON INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN AID, TRADE AND DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES. OUR MEMBERS ARE INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS + SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS WHO WISH TO COLLABORATE, NETWORK + SHARE IDEAS WITH EACH OTHER. WE WELCOME ANYONE WHO HAS EXPERIENCE WORKING ON INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT ISSUES. IF YOU WISH TO JOIN THE GROUP, PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION BELOW BEFORE REQUESTING MEMBERSHIP. THANK YOU! Thanks for checking out our group. We launched this meetup to create opportunities for independent consultants and social entrepreneurs working on international development issues to share ideas, collaborate and network over drinks, coffee or dinner. This group is particularly geared toward *experienced* professionals who own their own freelance consulting firms or social enterprises that address global sustainable development challenges (in the areas of health, agriculture, water/sanitation, climate change, economic development, environmental conservation, poverty alleviation, social development, etc.). Please feel free to suggest ideas for venues, speakers, discussion threads, etc. The meetup will be managed by the organizers but we are relying on members for ideas that will shape the events and the direction of this group. If anyone is interested in becoming a co-organizer please indicate this in your profile introduction or send me a personal email. In order to keep the group useful and productive, we ask that you answer the profile questions before joining. Our meetups will be held in NW DC. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting you!
