Twilight Talk with Susan Bragdon

April 04, 2017

Please join the MFA in Collaborative Design program on April 5 for our Twilight Talks series with guest Susan Bragdon. Twilight Talks are high-octane conversations, hosted by the Collaborative Design program, with special guests every Wednesday in the Office of Career Design. 

Susan Bragdon is a resource ecologist and international patent attorney, who recently joined QUNO Geneva as Representative for Food and Sustainability. She will lead their work on intellectual property of plants and on building a new framework for trade and investment in agriculture. Susan has 20 years of experience working with governments, public (intergovernmental and non-governmental) institutions, private enterprise and donor organizations in the field of sustainable development and poverty alleviation. Areas of expertise include public international law (treaty negotiation and implementation), agriculture, biodiversity conservation and use, biotechnology and public-private partnerships.

The Twilight Talks series provides opportunity for students, faculty and colleagues to get up close and personal with local and visiting leaders addressing wicked problems through design and creative process. Featured guests come from business, non-profit, and government sectors to talk about current environmental, social and entrepreneurial challenges they’re facing, and brainstorm novel approaches with us. The atmosphere is informal, the discussions are intense, the beverages are local.
