Dean, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University
Executive Director, Center for International Politics and Innovation, Carnegie Mellon University
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.

As a relatively new field, gender in macroeconomics suffers from incomplete data and from insufficient focus outside official institutions. In “Citi GPS Women in the Economy: Global Growth Generators,” CFR Senior Fellow Heidi Crebo-Rediker in a report co-authored with Tina M. Fordham of Citi, CFR Adjunct Senior Fellow Willem Buiter, and Ebrahim Rahbari of Citi revisit the “Global Growth Generators” thesis and argue that new policy responses, as well as learning from best practice, could improve female labor force participation with significant benefits that are not just economic but have social implications as well.
