Register to be a mentor at the Women's Foreign Policy Group 2020 Mentoring Forums!
Support the next generation of leaders by speaking informally with students and young professionals interested in international affairs careers.

The WFPG's Annual Mentoring Forums in Washington and New York provide an opportunity for students and young professionals to meet with international affairs professionals and learn from their career experiences. Unlike a career fair, the focus is on entering and succeeding in your field, not just opportunities at your company. These events are co-sponsored with The George Washington University and New York University. Learn more about WFPG's mentoring program
