LEADERSHIP. EQUALITY. EMPOWERMENT.
Georgetown Diplomatic Strategies’ “Women in Diplomacy” was founded in 2018 in order to showcase the impact of women in international affairs and diplomacy and to provide educational and professional development opportunities for young women interested in these fields. The project involves conducting roundtable discussions with women diplomats and creating video profiles about their insights and experiences, which are then shared on social media in order to reach young women outside of the organization. Furthermore, the project connects young women at Georgetown University, high schools across DC, ambassadors, congresswomen, and other successful women in diplomacy in a mentorship network so that the students can both learn from the experiences of these women and become part of a network that will help them in their future careers. By preparing the women of GDS and Washington, D.C. to enter the fields of diplomacy and international affairs, this project hopes to inspire the next generation of female diplomatic leaders, expand the conversation of global gender equality, and promote social empowerment.
