Published on: 28 March 2022

In April, Impactpool is hosting a unique career event to support our partner organizations that seek to diversify their talent pipelines.

A 5-hour online event curated for African professionals with work experience in sustainable development, humanitarian response, or any related field. This is a unique career opportunity to chat directly with HR representatives, apply for job vacancies and engage in live career workshops. 

Sign up for an event profile and request to participate - to engage with HR recruiters from these influential multilateral organizations - the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), the World Food Programme (WFP) the World Health Organization (WHO) the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

It is widely recognized that the development and humanitarian sector struggles to attract diverse talent. Many organizations recruit from the same schools and networks that lack significant racial and ethnic diversity. Tapping into talent from low-income and marginalized communities is one step towards a truly diverse workforce.
