AIF hosted Delhi’s first ever Alumni Connect on 24th October at the India Habitat Center. Seven Delhi-based Alumni of the AIF’s William J. Clinton Fellowship for Service in India attended the event. Throughout the evening,  Alumni had the opportunity to connect with AIF’s new President and CEO Alex Counts, who was visiting India, as well as AIF Country Director Nishant Pandey and the new AIF Clinton Fellowship program team. The purpose of this Alumni Connect was to share Alex’s vision for AIF, to discuss innovations in the Clinton Fellowship program, and to take suggestions from Alumni about the further development of the Clinton Fellowship Program and the Alumni Network. In the first part, Alex and Nishant shared updates from AIF’s new India strategy and how innovations as well as a new monitoring and evaluation framework will help AIF to strenghten and amplify the impact of the Clinton Fellowship Program in the years to come. During the discussion, Alumni shared inspiring accounts of how the Fellowship has assisted them in the work they are doing now, and offered valuable feedback on how to innovate and strengthen the Alumni network. Alumni presented great ideas for making the Alumni Network more engaging, some of which AIF will begin to implement in the coming months. The event helped to create connections and start a conversation between AIF and Alumni. The discussion was followed by a joint dinner at the India Habitat Center.
