Weidenfeld scholars host Gates scholars to launch annual dinner exchange.
Gates scholars have been invited to take part in what will be an annual dinner exchange with Weidenfeld scholars at Oxford University.
Ten scholars from each scholarship programme will take part in the first Weidenfeld-Gates Scholars’ Dinner on 22 May 2011 at Worcester College, Oxford.
The dinner includes a tour of Oxford, led by a Weidenfeld Scholar, pre-dinner drinks with a live jazz band and a formal dinner at Worcester College. The aim is to encourage further networking between scholars with similar interests.
The Weidenfeld Scholarships and Leadership Programme is aimed at future leaders from transition and emerging economies and includes a programme of leadership development, long-term mentoring and networking. It is managed by Oxford’s Institute for Strategic Dialogue.
