Program Alumni Speak to Students About Career Opportunities at SDSG

Environmental and Natural Resources Law and Policy alumni, Nadia Ahmad and Kristi Disney made time in their schedules to come and speak to students interested in international environmental law on Thursday November 8th.

Ms. Ahmad and Ms. Disney came with Professor Cecilia Dalupan to share the mission, projects and programs of the Sustainable Development Strategies Group (SDSG). They also highlighted internship opportunities available for students.

SDSG is a sustainable development consulting group focused on capacity building for governments, communities and practitioners. Professor Dalupan, a Principal of SDSG, spoke passionately about the increasing awareness of environmental and natural resources sustainability issues. SDSG’s projects include the Model Mine Development Agreement, a template for government leaders when making long-term mining agreements. Other projects focus on transparency initiatives, government accountability, community benefits sharing and seminars and workshops to teaching natural resource development skills.
Kristi Disney is now working as the Director of International Programs at SDSG.
Nadia Ahmad is now working as a Legal Fellow at SDSG. Ms. Ahmad stated, “The specializations offered by the ENRGP program will really give you an edge.”
We thank all three of these passionate women for taking time to speak to our students about the exciting opportunities that await them in international environmental law. The ENRGP program also wish Ms. Disney and Ms. Ahmad continued success in their future endeavors!

A similar event will take place on campus next Wednesday, the 14th:
The ENRGP program with SALDF and NRELS will host an Animal Law and Environmental Law Lunch Panel Discussion. Panelists will discuss course options, internship opportunities and career paths.
