Strengthening and Promoting Women’s Leadership in Foreign Policy across borders and generations.

Our unique combination of international issues programming, leadership development, and mentoring provides Diplomatic members with frequent opportunities to engage with US policy-makers and influencers and to enhance and expand existing knowledge and networks in this ever-changing environment, as well providing professional development for your up-and-coming women diplomats.

A key player in broadening the constituency for international affairs, WFPG brings together participants from across disciplines and links women domestically and internationally. We believe that through highlighting women leaders in foreign policy, we provide important role models for the next generation and create a vital network of women from different sectors, generations, and backgrounds.
