Talk by Rodney Bent

As former interim president at Millenium Challenge Corp. from 2005 to 2009, Rodney Bent worked to advance American values by delivering development assistance that promotes sound policy reforms, creates new opportunities for economic growth, and shares learning that makes the discipline of development effective and results-focused. Bent will pull from his decades of experience as a foreign affairs professional, from being a senior advisor in Iraq's coalition provisional authority to directing the United Nations Information Centre, to explore how the U.S. government can be most effective in its international development efforts. The talk will be followed by a question and answer period, and preceded by coffee, tea, and conversation at 6:30pm.
