How to Use Your Diverse Skills for a Global Health Career

September 28, 2016
3:30 – 4:45 pm



Global health (GH) is a field with a wide range of opportunities in diverse technical areas. From HIV/AIDS prevention to supply chain management, GH offers an avenue for 21st century leaders to solve complex global challenges by leveraging diverse skill sets from all backgrounds.

Join the Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) II as we explore what it takes to become a successful global health leader by building on the skills you already have. Our interactive webinar discussion features seasoned global health professionals with backgrounds in Information Technology (IT), advocacy, and communications.

We’ll kick off the discussion with the following questions:

• What do global health recruiters look for in a potential candidate?

• How can skills and experience with a non-global health focus transfer over to begin or advance a global health career?

• What are the top competencies sought after by global health organizations or agencies like the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)?

Our discussion will also turn to our live audience for questions submitted on Twitter. This is your chance to ask us what you’ve always wanted to know about how to pave your path for a career in global health. Submit your questions on Twitter by tagging @GHFPII or submitting questions in advance by emailing communications@ghfp.net.
