Career Fair

A new addition to Women Deliver 2013 is an all-day career fair, co-hosted by Management Sciences for Health, in the Exhibit Halls on May 29. With 5,000 attendees expected, this is an opportunity for organizations to introduce themselves to those conference participants seeking work or internships.

The Career Fair will be promoted before and during the conference to ensure that conference attendees will make time to tour the participating booths. Each participating exhibitor will have a flag on their booth and booth locations will be listed in the program and highlighted on social media.

The Exhibit Hall will have scattered seating areas for impromptu informational interviews or informal meet and greet opportunities to encourage further networking.
