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. Mentoring sessions for the Fall 2021 semester with our PiR’s will take place both online and in-person.
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; Jorge Dajani Chief Ethics Officer, World Bank; Joe Gartin Former Vice-Chairman, National Intelligence Council; Nadia Schadlow Senior Fellow, Hudson Institute and Former U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy; and Vera Songwe Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa.
