Why Have a WRI Alumni Network?
Since Gus Speth started the World Resources Institute in 1982 (see our Timeline) hundreds of people have worked at WRI in Washington and at locations around the world, and dozens of prominent individuals have served on our WRI’s Board of Directors. Many WRI alumni have gone on to have significant professional achievements that help to advance WRI’s mission. Others, including a growing number of former interns, are in the early stages of their careers, building their professional networks.
Until now there has been no easy way for alumni to stay in touch with former colleagues and keep up-to-date on WRI’s work. Established in January 2017, the new WRI Alumni Network aims to fill this gap.
The network will be launched on Thursday, January 26, in our new James A. Harmon Conference Center at WRI’s global office in Washington DC. WRI President and CEO Andrew Steer will kick off with a presentation of a special alumni edition of Stories to Watch—the institute’s take on the year ahead. Elizabeth Cook, Vice President for Strategy and Development, will then chair a panel a panel discussion with WRI alumni on their views on the coming year and the role for WRI. A reception will follow.
