Every October, Columbians around the world—alumni, students, parents, friends, neighbors, faculty, and staff—come together for Columbia Giving Day, a 24-hour online fundraising event on Oct. 26, 2016. Our alumni are deeply committed to making a real difference in the world. To support Giving Day, the work our alumni do, and to virtually say “thanks” to all of SIPA’s alumni who take on global issues, big and small, I’ll share one alumni story a week every Friday this month. The videos highlight the work of especially distinguished SIPA alumni, underscoring their various contributions to our society in the US and abroad.
First up is Tina Fordham, MIA ’99. She’s the managing director and chief global political analyst at Citi, worked to develop an analytical framework to help evaluate how political, social, and economic developments at the regional and global levels were likely to affect world markets.
