The Handshake: with Jill Wilkinson
7 December @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Navigating your career in the world of peace & justice can be tough: with so many potential options, causes, and routes into the sector. Sometimes it can even be difficult to think where to begin- do I need to do several internships? Does everyone need to go into ‘programme management’? And why does every UN job require a 24-page application form?
That’s why The Hague Peace & Justice Talent Hub has launched ‘The Handshake’: an event series where we invite senior figures from the world of peace & justice to join in conversation and reveal how they have ended up where they are in their career! You will have the chance to ask questions, get insights, and be inspired. The next edition features Jill Wilkinson from the Hague Humanity Hub December 7 (17:00 – 18.30).
Jill is the Managing Director of the The Hague Humanity Hub. She cares deeply about sustainability and believes in the power of community in creating a better world. A native Canadian, she has adopted the international city of peace and justice as her home and is proud to be part of the upstanding and innovative ecosystem in the Hague. Jill has an MBA from York University and a B.A. in German and Linguistics from the University of Toronto. Non-profit is her fourth career sector following corporate (Siemens), consulting (Capgemini) and government (Netherlands).
Join this event to learn more about Jill, her career journey, and life lessons she’s gained along the way!
