ICT4D is maturing as a field and university courses relating to ICT4D are proliferating. Increasingly, employers in international agencies, development funders, private sector companies and NGOs are looking for graduates with an ICT4D skillset, even if advertised under different terminology. This panel brings together educators, employers and graduates to discuss careers in ICT4D – where they are and how we prepare students for them. Following the panel, the panelists will offer  1-to-1 career advice slots.
