Leveraging institutional and geographic transitions: Insights from a career spanning research and projects in Africa, Asia, Europe and the US.
How does one manage big institutional transitions from practice to academia and back? How about geographic transitions — from the US to Africa to Europe and Asia? What are the connections between all of these disparate pieces in urban planning, infrastructure, poverty reduction initiatives, and private sector development, and how can one leverage them to deepen expertise and effectiveness? In this talk, Sumila Gulyani will share insights from her projects at the World Bank and around the world as well as from her research in academia.
