Second Annual Women of Color in Transatlantic Leadership Forum: Call for Students and Young Professionals
Application Due: September 14, 2018
Forum Date: October 4, 2018
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is seeking young women of color interested in pursuing a career in foreign policy to apply to attend GMF’s Second Annual Women of Color in Transatlantic Leadership Forum as a Young Professional Participant.
To ensure the next generation of foreign policy leaders are included in the dialogue, we will select ten young women with demonstrated interest in global affairs and exceptional leadership experience to participate in this year’s forum.
Second Annual Women of Color in Transatlantic Leadership Forum:
Diversifying Defense, Diplomacy, and Development
The Second Annual Women of Color in Transatlantic Leadership Forum will convene over 100 distinguished women of color leaders from across sectors to discuss the foreign policy and national security issues most pressing to the transatlantic space, and to create a pipeline to encourage women of color to continue pursuing opportunities to advance the international and transatlantic component of their leadership.
The forum will open with a Congressional Roundtable, featuring Congresswomen of Color who serve as leading voices on foreign affairs and national security issues in the U.S. Congress. The roundtable will be followed by three “power panels” in which female leaders distinguished in their fields will engage in dialogue on the Forum’s three topics: defense, diplomacy, and development. Following a networking lunch, all forum participants will break up into small groups for afternoon workshops on leadership development and establishing a career pipeline.
