AFLSE Multilateral Institutions Affinity Group

This spring, the Alumni and Friends of the LSE in the US (AFLSE) will roll out industry-specific affinity groups. Each will provide:

- a forum for discussion at a variety of events;
- opportunities for professional networking and mentoring; and,
- links with LSE academics that have common interest with group members.

Groups will be made up of AFLSE-registered users or paid-up members. They are open to professionals working in a particular field and to alumni with either a personal or professional interest in it. Based on information in our database, we have placed you in the Multilateral Institutions affinity group.

You are welcome to join more than one group. Other groups include:

- Education
- Hedge Funds
- Financial Services
- Legal
- Management Consulting
- Media
- Not For Profit/NGO
- Real Estate
- US Government

Get Involved
We expect many US-based LSE alumni to use this service and your active involvement is key to strengthening it as a resource. In particular we are looking for mentors. To be clear, this will not be a resume service. Instead, we seek alumni working in the UN, World Bank, IMF, and other multilateral institutions who would be willing to speak to other LSE graduates in our affinity group. Mentors' roles will include offering their insights about professional prospects within the Multilateral system (or a particular subfield) and answering questions about how to establish or advance a career within it. Mentors will be issued addresses that will allow them to guard their personal contact information.

We are also looking for Multilateral Institution committee members and for people who are interested in developing engaging and topical programs.

To sign up as a mentor or for further information, please contact the current co-chairs, Bryce Quillin or Michelle Risley, at

Please also forward this email to any other LSE alumni who you think might be interested in joining this group.
