Corporate Advisory Council

Strengthening and Promoting Women’s Leadership in Foreign Policy and Global Business

WFPG delivers greater visibility for women leaders across all sectors, opportunities for professional development, access to new contacts, and showcases role models for the next generation. Corporate Advisory Council membership is an opportunity not only to enhance your international knowledge and expand your networks, it is an opportunity to provide a corporate benefit to your up-and-coming women leaders.

Washington and New York offer access to countless international organizations like the World Bank, IMF, United Nations, the global diplomatic community, Congress, the Executive branch, and international business leaders.

Our unique combination of high-level foreign policy programming, personal and business development, and mentoring provides Council members with numerous opportunities to strengthen and expand existing knowledge and networks in this ever-changing environment. Further, WFPG provides a platform to showcase your corporation and its support for current women leaders and the next generation of business and policy leaders.
