The Roundtable Discussion!

For our first shop day of the summer, the EWB Toronto Pro Chapter hosted a roundtable discussion on the challenges in international work.  The discussion was facilitated by Chapter Members Brian Putre and Amira Nayed, and many interesting topics were covered over the course of a few hours.  Some discussions included the efficiency of monetary investments into international development; aligning the supply and demand for human resources; and the extent to which development organizations should focus on economic growth in developing countries.  The purpose of the roundtable discussion was not to walk away with tangible outcomes or learnings, but rather to get attendees thinking about the different challenges and ways they might be addressed, to help broaden one another’s perspectives, and to encourage reflection over the coming days and weeks.  The shop day was well-attended and there was lots of interest and participation.  It was held in a relaxed setting and also featured snacks, refreshments, and networking opportunities.
