The LUMS (Lahore University of Management Sciences) Alumni from the Development Sector held an interactive get-together on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at the Pepsi Dining Centre (PDC) at LUMS.
More than fifteen alumni attended the gathering from different batches and programmes, and also a number of current students, who are interested in the field of development and reform. The get-together was a great opportunity for students to meet alumni working in the field. It was a great opportunity for students to seek guidance from the alumni regarding the Development Sector.
The alumni also enjoyed the chance to reconnect with their fellow Luminites in a comfortable setting. They discussed the various opportunities and challenges that they face in the Development Sector, and engaged in conversations about how they can help and support each other. The group also made a collective decision to create both a WhatsApp group and a Facebook page exclusively for LUMS alumni working in the Development Sector.
After brainstorming ideas related to the mentoring of fresh LUMS graduates entering this profession, and discussing various upcoming projects, the group said their farewells with a mutual resolve to meet up more frequently.
