Official Launch: Careers in Development at DFID

Hosted by WIAN, in collaboration with the UK Department for International Development (DFID)


After months of hard work and planning, we will be collaborating with the Department for International Development for our launch event! It will be a networking and career panel event, and a rare opportunity for our members to experience DFID from the inside.

Our website will officially launch on the night, and we will hopefully secure more mentors for our mentoring programme. It’s set to be a great and exciting night!
