On May 13, nearly 100 attended “Post-Conflict Reconstruction – Challenges Facing Business, NGOs and the Obama Administration,” the third installment of the Global Business Speaker Series at the Performing Arts Center at the Sylvania Campus. The ongoing once-per-term lecture series features prominent speakers from the business community. The event was headlined by Mark Schneider, a senior vice president for International Crisis Group in Washington, D.C. Art Schneider is his brother and this connection helped to make this event happen. Among the topics addressed that morning were post-conflict reconstruction; opportunities in public/private partnerships; the impact of conflict on the global business community; and career opportunities in international development.
