Hilary Dubose '05, who currently works with an international humanitarian aid organization managing several earthquake relief programs in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, will present "Living What You Believe: International Development Work in Post-Earthquake Haiti." More than two and a half years after the Haiti earthquake, over 350,000 people remain homeless, living in makeshift tents in hundreds of camps that were hastily formed after the quake. Based on her experience working in these camps, Dubose will discuss the current state of affairs in Haiti with a special focus on the earthquake response by NGOs and the plight of the remaining displaced people. Using her own experience working both domestically and internationally in NGOs and multilateral organizations, she will also talk about building a career in the NGO or multilateral (UN) sector, including what it's really like to work in these sectors and internationally, how to get your foot in the door, and concrete steps you can take now to set yourself on a path to find a meaningful career that will allow you to live what you believe. Dubose graduated from Hollins with a degree in gender and women's studies and earned her master's degree in development and food security in 2010 from Roma Tre University in Rome. Her non-profit work in the United States has included managing a farmer's market and advocacy work for refugees. Before moving to Haiti, she worked for the United Nations World Food Program in Rome. This event is cosponsored by gender and women's studies, sociology/anthropology, and international studies.
