Humber's International Development Week Brings in UN Expert and Key Opportunities for Students
The Humber International Development Institute - a new arm of your Humber International Centre - is thrilled to announce that Ravi Karkara, Senior Advisor on Strategic Partnerships and Advocacy to the Assistant Secretary General and Deputy Executive Director UN Women, will be coming to Humber Lakeshore Campus to deliver the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals youth training, offered free to Humber students! This opportunity falls in the middle of a jam-packed schedule and highlight of Humber IDI's amazing programming planned for next week's International Development Week.
With over 20 years of experience, Ravi is an acknowledged expert in various development related fields. He has been driving innovation and advocacy as well as building strategic partnerships in the areas of human rights, participation, inclusion and gender equality, accountability, and social justice.
Ravi is the co-chair of the UN Inter-Agency Network for Youth Development and has built UN Women’s Strategy on youth and gender equality. He developed and led the youth outreach of the UN Secretary General's MyWorld Survey to deliver votes from more than 6 million youth from 193 nations.
If you are unable to attend the training session, make sure to make it out to one of the other panel discussions, the Design Thinking workshop or the gallery expose on all week.
