Work Locally, Act Globally

Interested in pursuing an international career in SF?

The Bay Area International Link (BAIL) joins Global Lives to co-host a happy-hour and panel discussion focused on how you can live in the Bay Area and build a career working on global issues that matter, like human rights, international development, governance, fair trade, social justice, peacebuilding, the environment and more.

Our panelists will dispel the myth that one must move to DC, New York, or even Geneva to get jobs in these fields and discuss what it takes to get a globally-mind job without leaving our favorite town.  GET TICKETS HERE.

When: Wednesday, March 26, 5-9pm, panel starts 6:00pm..
