On Thursday, May 17th, the CDC hosted the final lecture of their Leadership Series. Mr. Hyo-Chan Cho – the International Finance Corporation’s regional head for Infrastructure and Natural Resources in the Asian Pacific region – gave a very informative lecture, beginning with his journey through the IFC and what they strive to accomplish each year. He described various projects the IFC has been involved with and the challenges they often need to overcome. He showed the students that projects are not simple matters of good investment or not. The IFC considers the well-being of the environment and people so he stressed the importance of working together with a variety of groups in order to make the best decision for all involved. The students were given time for a Q&A session at the end of his lecture. The questions were focused primarily on specific challenges the IFC must deal with, as the students were most likely thinking about their future career paths. A big thank you to Mr. Cho for his time and the CDC for putting together a great Spring semester Leadership Series.
