MSFS welcomes four new Practitioners in Residence who will mentor the MSFS students in their professional journeys throughout the upcoming year.
MSFS welcome four new Practitioners in Residence (PiRs) for the 2020-2021 academic year. The Practitioners in Residence initiative promotes interactions between MSFS students and leading practitioners in international affairs in order to advance students’ professional development. Every year, leading professionals in global affairs are selected to be MSFS Practitioners in Residence. These Practitioners mentor students and offer career guidance and advice through activities such as skills clinics, seminars, and career sessions. All mentoring session for the Fall 2020 semester with our PiR’s will take place online.
The Practitioners in Residence initiative furthers MSFS’s stated mission to prepare women and men to be creative leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors of international affairs. By connecting with mentors in leading roles across the sphere of international affairs, our students will gain a deeper understanding of the various contexts of contemporary international relations.
We are thrilled to welcome this year’s PiRs Fareiha Aziz, Co-Founder of Bolo Bhi; Mèlika Carroll, Vice President, Public Affairs at Sonder; Hafez Ghanem, Vice President for Eastern and Southern Africa at World Bank; and David A. Weiss, Chief Executive Officer at Global Communities.
