Panel on June 10: Career with a Cause - NGO Perspectives in Focus



The Global Affairs in Dialogue Committee is delighted to invite you to a very special event!

On Thursday, June 10th, at 7 pm (CET) we will host an online panel with guests working in the non-profit sector. Besides Anna Ramskogler-Witt, who will be sharing her unique perspective as a human rights cinematographer, we are also thrilled to announce the presence of Baraa Bakkar, managing director of the Syrian NGO Orange dedicated to empowering civil society actors, and Jascha Galaski, who works on strengthening the legal foundation of civil and digital rights in the EU. The event is intended as a non-formal discussion about how a career in the non-profit sector can develop.

Anna Ramskogler-Witt studied art history and currently works as director of the Human Rights Film Festival Berlin. Baraa Bakkar holds a master of business administration, and apart from Orange he is also the CEO of an Istanbul-based investment group. Jascha Galaski graduated in public policy and human development and he is presently an advocacy officer at Civil Liberties Union for Europe.

Each of them will give us their insight into their individual career path and personal experience, how they made career decisions, and what advice they would give to current students. Afterwards, you will be able to ask questions and receive the valuable first-hand information you might be looking for on how you could proceed after graduation.

With this second episode of the special event series "Career Talks on International and Human Rights Careers", we aim at creating a platform for sharing stories and giving advice - in particular for those of you who are interested in international careers with a cause.

You can sign up for the event here. You will receive the Zoom link to access the panel shortly before it via e-mail.

We look forward to seeing many of you there!
