Professionals Abroad works with top U.S. and international professional associations to facilitate professional exchange between counterparts around the globe. In both urban and rural settings, doctors, lawyers, educators, social scientists, environmentalists, and others gain valuable perspective about their own profession through counterpart meetings where they can share common challenges and connect on a one-to-one level. All Professionals Abroad programs include briefings with government representatives and content specialists, as well as visits in the field with practitioners at their facilities.
Professionals Abroad is led by Dawn Davis. With over 20 years experience in the field of professional exchange, Dawn has arranged for teams of professionals representing Medicine, Law, Education, Technology, and the Social Sciences to meet with their counterparts around the globe. Dawn’s partners have included The American College of Physicians, American Bar Association, National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, Water Environment Federation, and the American Association of University Women. These teams have visited Rwanda, The People’s Republic of China, Russia, Vietnam, Cambodia, South Africa, Israel, Jordan and many, many more destinations.
