Are you just starting out a career in international affairs? Are you exploring different pathways but unsure how to get there or are you looking for tips and tricks on how to land your dream job? Join the Women’s Foreign Policy Group for our monthly Mentor Minutes! On every last Thursday of the month at 3:30 pm EST, WFPG Members will get a chance to speak to an experienced mentor in international affairs in a small-group setting. These intimate conversations will allow Members to interact with women leaders across various sectors.

WFPG believes that mentorship is crucial for the next generation of women leaders to develop confidence and discover the tools they need to succeed. Mentor Minutes are a unique opportunity for students and young professionals to broaden their network among mentors and colleagues alike in a small-group setting. Members will gain insight on upcoming career decisions, learn more about tailoring applications to particular organizations and sectors, and hear directly from those in the field who have unparalleled experience to share.

Not a member, but would like to join Mentor Minutes? Join today! WFPG is committed to strengthening networking connections for students and young professionals across all sectors. Beginning a career in international affairs can be incredibly difficult without support and access to resources. As a WFPG member, not only are you invited to attend Mentor Minutes, but you also receive complimentary admission to all other in-person and virtual professional development and mentoring programs, such as our Career Pathways. Additionally, you will gain access to exclusive member experiences and opportunities.
