The Queen's Global Innovation Conference (QGIC) is hiring directors! QGIC engages delegates from all faculties in critical discussions about the most pressing global issues of our time. The conference aims to inspire and provoke the exchange and exploration of ideas, and encourage dynamic thinking with creative workshops and interactive speakers. Previous conferences have explored climate change, water scarcity, the power of social media, ethical consumerism, and much more. QGIC incorporates a Dragon’s Den-style innovation challenge that tests the skills that delegates have acquired and allows them to put their ideas into action.
Applications are due Friday April 5 at 5 pm. If you have any questions about the position, application or interview process, please feel free to contact conference chair Olga Khuskivadze at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Queen’s Global Innovation Conference, or QGIC, focuses on the three I’s: to inspire delegates to care about the most pressing global issues of our time; to innovate solutions to these complex world problems; and to integrate these solutions into their communities. Instead of the conventional conference format, this participant-driven ‘un-conference’ aims to attract a wide variety of students and allows them to actively engage with speakers and professionals. We want to challenge delegates to ask questions about themselves and the systems they operate within during the conference and after they return to their everyday lives. The delegates should leave the conference feeling empowered to take action, and equipped with the necessary tools to accomplish their goals. Information on registration to come, keep the weekend of November 16 free!
