Expert Sessions

The expert sessions are conducted by experienced thinktankers and mentors who are part of the OTT community. Each month, one expert will join the Fellowship to share cross-cutting insights from the policy and development sectors. Watch the sessions and view the presentations to develop new ways of thinking, challenge your views, and reflect on your ideas.
