Working in Global Development

Securing your first job in global development can be exciting, but can also be difficult, exhausting and demoralising. Our panel of experts, facilitated by Brendan Rigby of WhyDev, share insights into how to get into the sector. The expert panel includes: Nathan Mullins, Security and Risk Advisor at AVI Kathryn Gilbert, former Head of UNICEF Solomon Islands and Research Fellow at Monash University

MDC, WhyDev and Catalyst Co-Lab (formerly MIVD) deliver a great night of discussion and networking. Food and non-alcoholic refreshments included. Tickets are $10 and must be purchased at:

    Hi guys, I wasn't able to make this on Monday night, unfortunately. In the comments below, it was mentioned that the event would be recorded, so does anyone know whether this happened, and if so, where it can be viewed? Thanks!

    Excellent as it provided a good appreciation of the positives as well as the reality checks necessary before fully committing to a career in development. Great to have the opportunity to mingle with like minded people and especially those with field experience.

      Hello! I RSVP'd but didn't actually buy a ticket so think I have missed the boat -great to see that everyone are so keen though! Where will the recording of the event be available to watch? Thanks

    Hey y'all if you've RSVPed to this event make sure you've also purchased a ticket via Eventbrite (link above). It's selling out fast. $10 ticket includes drinks and nibbles. See you there!

    I think this will be a great discussion to observe and be involved in. I came to development from a relatively unusual place, so this discussion will be a good chance to show the audience some different approaches.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
