WFPG believes that providing the next generation of women leaders with the tools to succeed is the key to promoting women’s voices in foreign affairs. The organization provides a forum where women of all ages can broaden their networks, mentor those new to the field, and be mentored by those who have come before them.
Global Issues Programs
Frequent, in-depth global issues forums feature women thought leaders and news-makers from government, journalism, diplomacy, and academia. Our programming takes members beyond the headlines and provides context for key global challenges.
Young Professional Network
WFPG's YP Network is a member-led discussion group open to all WFPG student and young professional members. The Network hosts professional development, mentoring and smaller substantive issues discussions in person in DC, NY, and online--as well as networking happy hours and social events.
Professional Development
WFPG's professional development programming helps support our members at every stage of their careers. Programs include skills-focused and career-specific discussions as well as larger panel discussions and workshops on public speaking, salary negotiation, and virtual networking.
