Social Work & International Emergencies

March 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Jacqui Stewart Bah’s experience is in responding to international emergencies and thinks this is a great area for social workers to be involved. She will cover how Peace Corps helped her get a start internationally, her personal experience working in an international setting, how students can go abroad with Peace Corps and the importance of having a global mindset.

Jacqui Stewart Bah currently works for the UT International Office as the Peace Corps Campus Recruiter. After completing her undergraduate degree in Sociology from Boston University, Bah joined the Peace Corps and was sent to Guinea, West Africa, an experience that she says absolutely changed her life and the direction of her career. Determined to work internationally after her Peace Corps tour, she returned to the United States to get her Master in International Public Health and Global Social Work from Tulane University. Since getting her master, she has worked mostly in West Africa, except for a quick year and half in Rwanda. Her passion is in creating and implementing holistic psychosocial programming for emergency settings, such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and most recently for communities impacted by Boko Haram in Niger. An Austin native, Bah is enjoying being back home and working stateside in her current role at UT Austin.
