Brown Bag 1: Inside the Grameen Bank

When: Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Where: WSC 101
Speaker: Jeni Oppenheimer IPE '11
Event: IPE Brown Bag Event

Jeni Oppenheimer is a Junior at Puget Sound, studying International Political Economy. She recently held an internship with the Grameen Bank in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The internship consisted of field visits, exposure to social business, and gaining a general understanding of the internal structure of the Grameen Bank.

She met with borrowers and got an inside look at the organization. She also was fortunate enough to meet Professor Yunus himself during her stay there. Her speech will give an overview of her duties during the internship, the structure of the Grameen Bank and information on how to get involved.

We would love for you to join us for our 1st IPE Brown Bag event of the new semester!
