Many Fulbrighters have an on-going professional or academic interest in the field of International Development.
To harness the collaborative potential of these Fulbrighters, alum Aleksandra Liaplina has launched a new International Development network.
This group unites alumni working across the International Development space – whether in international organisations and financial institutions, private sector, governments, foundations, thinktanks, or academic institutions. The group aims to provide a shared space for Fulbrighters to exchange ideas and collaborate on topics and initiatives.
Aleksandra – who completed her Fulbright at Georgetown University in 2012/14 – has spent over a decade working in the field. She previously founded a Fulbright network at the World Bank Group (WBG) and International Monetary Fund (IMF). Launching the group, Aleksandra said:
“There’s a huge amount of talent and inventiveness among Fulbright alums. Through this group, I hope we can pull together to build a powerful support network and to develop meaningful initiatives to address some of the challenges of our age.”
