Career Opportunities for Kinners in the Public Interest Technology, and Digital Government Sectors – April 8

The Centre for Student Involvement and Careers, in partnership with the UBC Hub of Ten Thousand Coffees, is excited to bring you a virtual mentorship and networking opportunity to connect with KIN Alumna Katherine Benjamin (BHK ’08).

Katherine will speak to how COVID-19 created a situation whereby — almost overnight — the primary interface between governments, not-for-profits, community groups and businesses is now a digital one, and what this implies. Perhaps the field is now being levelled allowing all sectors to create more elegant, user-friendly and modern digital inroads and solutions.

This session is aimed at technologists and non-technologists alike. What career opportunities exist for those interested in leveraging and applying similar ways of working to advance government, civic or mission-driven organizations in the digital era?

This event is open to all undergraduate and graduate students and alumni.
