International Development Working Group

Thursday’s the big day! After analyzing the data collected from the recent “Bay Area Hub – International Development Survey,” our hypothesis is confirmed- there are numerous members who are already involved in International Development, or eager to become so, and are interested in engaging with others in this field. We hope to unite these local, innovative minds to move forward in addressing their vision.

The Hub provides a space that supports innovation, optimizes productivity, and supplies an abundance of tools for working, learning, and connecting. To this end, we’ve identified an opportunity to bolster resources for those especially interested in international development.  We are creating an International Development Working Group (IDWG) to help brainstorm and plan events and activities that would benefit our ID focused members.

Should you wish to share your thoughts and participate in this group, please join us this Thursday, December 17 from 1:00-2:00pm in the 2nd floor conference room at the Brower Center. (2150 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA 94704).

Alright enought from us… time to go celebrate and feast at the Hub Members Holiday Potluck! Hope to see you all tomorrow.
