On Friday, April 4, and Saturday, April 5, 2014, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Global Access Pipeline (GAP), and the International Career Advancement Program (ICAP) will bring together high-achieving students and professionals from diverse backgrounds for a multi-day conference including seminars on foreign policy, professional development, and engagement with senior foreign policy professionals. GAP seeks to provide a pipeline for the underrepresented to achieve leadership positions in international affairs across governmental, nonprofit, and private sectors, and ICAP intends to help bring greater diversity to the staffing of senior management and policymaking positions in international public service. The conference will enhance participants' access to and preparedness for global careers.
