International Fellows Network and New Leaders Council Dinner in Washington, DC, May 2017

May 25, 2017

On May 23rd, the International Fellows Network partnered with New Leaders Council’s Washington, DC Chapter to host a dinner for current and former fellows at Lapis Restaurant. The dinner brought together a cross-disciplinary group of leaders in their fields to discuss “A New Era in Foreign Policy.” Fellows discussed how the new administration is changing U.S. foreign policy, issues in the Middle East (including ISIS and Syria), the need for expertise in confronting policy challenges, and how to talk about International Relations to non-experts. Fellows also discussed their career trajectories in the field of foreign policy and their experiences on wide range of international fellowships.
