  • GPI Career Spotlight: Think Tanks

    The LMU Global Policy Institute is excited to host the next chapter of the GPI Career Spotlight Initiative by introducing students to careers in human rights. This event will be hosted by Dr. Ari Shaw, Senior Fellow and the Director of International Programs at the Williams Institute. The first half of this event will begin with Dr. Shaw's presentation, while the second half will be reserved for a Q&A with students.

    This event is part of the GPI Career Spotlight Initiative. This initiative invites professionals in international relations and global policy to talk about their careers and experiences. The initiative aims to provide LMU students with ideas of professional pathways in international relations and global policy, and hopes to inspire the next generation of global citizens to become changemakers in their lives after the Bluff.
