Unleashing the Inner (Good) Bankers
Presented by: Professor Claire Hill, Law School 
With Wells Fargo in our recent history, it is clear that problematic banker behavior has continued. Demonizing bankers is easy, unrealistic, and ultimately not helpful. Better law can help, but a cultural shift, both within banks and in the broader society, is necessary as well.  This talk describes that cultural shift, and how it can come about.

All are welcome!  Refreshments will be served

IPID research solidarity group
If you are a student working on a thesis, dissertation, capstone, or paper related to international development, consider attending the IPID Student Society Workshops. These workshops are targeted to Masters and Phd students who are working on their thesis, dissertations, capstone or professional papers related to international development (i.e. social justice, food security, public health, non-profit work, natural conservation, economic development, etc.). The purpose of these workshops are to create a space for students to work quietly and individually in a group setting. At the beginning and end of every session, there will be a check-in and set goals for the duration of the session and for the next session. If there is enough interest among participants there will also be a system to do peer review for each other. Also, this will be an excellent opportunity to network with researchers across disciplines and catch up with the cutting-edge research in international development. Finally, when you finish your work we will connect you with Reconsidering Development Journal so you can have the possibility to publish your work!
