ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE + CAREER FAIR
In recent years, BPIA has held an annual international affairs career expo and panels on the historic campus of Howard University. As one of our high-impact programs, the career fairs have continued to connect diverse talent to international opportunities.
This year, BPIA is moving its successful in-person career event to a virtual platform and expanding its scope and scale. The virtual event allows for a significantly broader and wider outreach to students and young professionals interested in careers with an international focus.
This event is open to persons of all backgrounds and various professional levels. We invite undergraduate students, graduate students, and young professionals to explore our career fair which will feature organizations providing information about internships, full-time jobs, fellowships, scholarship and more.
BPIA aims to develop and expand opportunities, roles and numbers of African Americans and members of the African Diaspora in the global affairs arena. We focus on enhancing professional development, facilitating mentorships, sharing job opportunities and resources, curating experiences, and expanding insights.
BPIA is responsive to changing foreign policy, security, educational and commercial needs. We offer access to global thought leaders and provide dynamic programming. Our vision is a more diverse representative group of international affairs professionals actively engaged in addressing the challenges of the 21st Century.
