|IDS Alumni Ambassadors Group|
The coronavirus pandemic continues to prevent IDS students from being able to meet many like-minded people working in development.
We'd like to offer current IDS students the chance to be connected to a former IDS students (alumni) for a one-off 30 minute virtual coffee meeting to allow current students to speak to alumni about their experiences of life after IDS.
If you'd like to be part of this please sign-up using the relevent form:
You'll then receive your connection(s), via email, after 14 June 2021.
Students can attend the workshop on 3 June to find out how to get the most out of the connections, including useful hints and tips on conversation starting and continuing. [Useful information from this workshop]
Other than the expectation to arrange between you a 30-45 minute virtual chat. There is no formal structure, it is just a friendly chat for to help IDS students expand their network, during these unusual times.
