Being an Ambassador and Building Partnerships: Dec. 6 Webinar
AUA Network Webinar Being an Ambassador and People-to-People Partnerships
How can you build effective partnerships as a volunteer abroad?
On Dec. 6, Kate Otto, Founder and Director of the Everyday Ambassador initiative, will give a special webinar about citizen diplomacy and using volunteer service to be an effective Unofficial Ambassador.
Kate will explore best practices for building people-to- people partnerships in the field. She’ll give practical advice about personal conduct for volunteers and highlight some of the potential pitfalls volunteers should avoid. Along the way, she’ll discuss ways to engage local people while volunteering abroad and the role of technology in citizen diplomacy.
Kate is a public health professional who was recently featured in the eBook “Disruptive Women in Healthcare.” Currently, she works with the World Bank, USAID and the Massachusetts General Hospital. She also writes for the Huffington Post and recently penned a piece for the Christian Science Monitor on the importance of citizen diplomacy in the Muslim World. Kate is now writing a book called Everyday Ambassador: How to Be a Global Citizen in a Digital World and was a featured speaker at the 2012 TEDxUNC conference.
There is limited space available for this AUA event. Please RSVP to Stefanc@creativelearning.org to receive instructions on how to access the webinar, which will be held from 12-1 pm.
