New York, NY—On February 21, 2018, the WFPG held its annual NY Mentoring Fair at New York University. Over 140 students and young professionals attended the fair. In addition to NYU, students attended the event from Baruch, Columbia, Fordham, Hunter, New School, Penn State, Princeton, Sarah Lawrence College, Seton Hall, Syracuse, Rutgers, and Vassar. The program gave participants an opportunity to speak with accomplished professionals from across the foreign affairs community. The event was co-sponsored with the NYU Wasserman Career Center, NYU Wagner School of Public Service, NYU Wagner Refugee Action Council, and the NYU Student Association for Global Affairs. Many thanks to our mentors who volunteered their time to speak with students and young professionals!
