We are writing today about Crea tu Futuro, a new program that is being launched by the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC) – the newly reformed private sector branch of the IDB Group. The IIC is an exciting place to be – they are growing rapidly and are eager to innovate as they work to finance the private sector in Latin America and the Caribbean to bolster competitiveness and growth while ensuring sustainability.
To keep up this momentum, they seek to bring on talented young professionals who have recently completed their Master’s degree. Specifically targeting graduates from business administration, finance, economics, and international relations programs, selected candidates will spend two 18-month rotations with IIC teams in Washington, DC and/or across the region.
We would like to promote this opportunity among your students and grads to ensure we are pulling from the most quality institutions and from our very own partnership network. Would you be able to help us share this information or to put us in touch with those individuals who might be able to promote it?
We are attaching a brochure that offers further details, but please do not hesitate to contact Erica Chicola (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Thanks so much in advance,
The IDB Partnerships Team

Presidential Elections and Human Rights in Iran
with Mani Mostofi, IMPACT Iran and Brooklyn College’s Human Rights in Iran Unit
Wednesday, May 10, 2:15-3:45 PM
112 Roosevelt Extension
On May 19, Iran is having its next presidential elections. The 2009 elections resulted in mass protests, but little lasting change as the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei called for the suppression of this Green Movement. The 2013 elections produced a new president, Hassan Rouhani, who cast himself as a moderate. Come find out how to understand this election and the potential consequences for human rights in Iran from Mani Mostofi, Director of IMPACT Iran which is part of a project of the Brooklyn College political science program and its MA in International Affairs and Global Justice. We will also talk about possibility of interning with the project (see https://bcpolscima.wordpress.com/human-rights-in-iran-unit/)/.
