The BGInS Passport to Professional Readiness is an exciting new professional development program designed uniquely for BGInS students in any year of the program.

The program offers registered students access to a range of activities aimed at equipping them with the essential skills, career connections, and professional awareness they need to succeed after BGInS.

Drawing on partners in government, the not-for-profit sector, international arenas, and business, activities are led by passionate practitioners engaged in global and international work. Though activities will change annually, this year’s program includes topics such as Job Search and Networking, Preparing for a Virtual Interview, and Gender Agency and Power in Private Sector Responses to Gender-Based Violence.

The Passport Program is available at no additional cost to students and is intended to complement key features of the BGInS degree program, such as the International Experience Requirement. Students who complete the Passport Program can include this accomplishment on their Co-Curricular Record.
