The Black Alumni Panel is a moderated virtual panel for prospective Princeton in Africa (PiAf) Program applicants. The panel will be made up of Black, African and African PiAf alumni aiming to give applicants with similar backgrounds insight as to how fellows experienced and leveraged their fellowships.
The panelists bring a wealth of experience in international development, international law, marketing & communications, education, non-profit work, and beyond. We will discuss what brought them to apply, how their experience was, and how identity factored into their Princeton in Africa fellowship. There will be ample time to answer questions from attendees.
N/B This event will take place Oct 16, 2020 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
