Previous EIO participants have found the program highly valuable for expanding their professional networks and increasing their effectiveness for contributing to global program development. Previous participants report increased success in their own positions as a result of what they’ve learned about how the IGOs operate. They also feel more comfortable interacting with IGOs and report greater confidence they can contribute to shared leadership in global policy-making.
Previous Participants said:
“Seeing and learning about the perceptions from academia, industry, and nongovernment organizations…provided new perspective on our roles with government agencies engaging in intergovernmental activities.”
“The simulated exercise throughout the week was very realistic and provided us with an opportunity to actually work with people from these organizations on important issues”.
“The EIO program showed me that even as an individual, I can have an influence in the different approaches around me just being knowledgeable about how things are going”
