The spring PDI will have an international focus. In addition to a recruiter and returned volunteers from the Peace Corps, Senior Foreign Service Officer, Michael McClellan, will be presenting a talk on diplomatic career opportunities within the U.S. State Department.
The final event of the spring PDI will be a panel discussion lead by three entrepreneurs, Dr. Anne Peterson, Bill Burmeister, and Dr. Dale Williams. All three of these southwest Michigan residents have created enterprises that are providing tools for economic empowerment around the globe and will be sharing their stories at the panel discussion, “Solar Em-Power-ment: How a Visit to Rwanda Sparked Social Entrepreneurism”.
In between the presentations and the evening panel discussion will be an informal reception. The reception will be an opportunity for the college community to interact with the presenters and area professionals in a more relaxed environment.
The spring PDI aims to help students consider life in a global marketplace through reflection, discussion, and interacting with people from all different perspectives and experiences.
