Join us for a panel discussion about pursuing a career in the NGO sector. You will hear from several professionals (some of who are CEU alum) with experience in a range of NGO's and a variety of roles and foci, from green initiatives to human rights and education. Our speakers will share information about their own career paths and provide advice for CEU students interested in this career area. Below you will find more information about the panelists and their current work and background.
