Devex's 2015 lifestyle coverage: 5 must-read stories

Devex Associate Editor Kelli Rogers reflects on five of Devex’s top lifestyle stories of 2015.

In 2015, Devex made a renewed effort to cover more of the lifestyle topics that matter most to you — our audience of global development professionals.

Achieving your own career goals as well as the goals you’ve helped set with the communities you serve are both extremely important to you, we know. But let’s not forget that it’s a long road, and that the everyday life of an aid worker is equal parts frustrating and fascinating, enigmatic and entertaining. I think some of our coverage this year has helped prove that, whether it was about love or leadership or work-life balance.

As the editor of the Doing Good publication, more than anything I want to engage with our ever-growing audience. Is there a lifestyle topic we haven’t even touched that you want to talk about? Is there an initiative, a phrase or a movement we could dig into that would allow you to better do your job? Tweet me @kellierin.

But first, check out this video with some of my top picks of our lifestyle coverage this year.
