Greetings from your Pangea Advisors Alumni Ambassadors! As previous volunteer consultants and officers for Pangea / IDC, we are writing to welcome you to the newly-created Pangea Advisors Professionals Network, which offers you a direct link to fellow alumni and current students who have been involved in the International Development Club pro-bono consulting projects now known as Pangea Advisors.
We invite alumni working in the field of international development and/or those who have participated in pro bono consulting projects while at CBS to become an active part of this community. We hope that over the coming months you will serve as Pangea project mentors, meet up with us at Pangea Advisors social events, share news of interesting events related to Pangea’s work and/or volunteer to help Pangea students in other capacities (e.g., serve as a judge in the annual photo competition).
The Pangea Advisors Professionals Network is open to CBS alumni interested in staying connected to Pangea activities on campus. We circulate newsletters and invitations for events to alumni in this group and we are in the process of creating LinkedIn and listserve groups to make it easier to bring us all together.
For more information about this group and to connect, please contact us about your current role, organization and Columbia Business School year of graduation.
