Emerging Leaders 2013

 

With the Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program, the German Marshall Fund of the United States and the OCP Policy Center foster a unique network across generations, continents, and cultures, giving the next generation of leaders a place at the table.

The Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program combines leadership development training, working sessions, and conversations with prominent thinkers. The emerging leaders are then invited to participate in the Atlantic Dialogues conference. The Atlantic Dialogues is a platform where emerging leaders from the world of politics, business, and ideas engage with senior policymakers and business and media representatives. By encouraging a lively and informal exchange of views between rising leaders and today’s decision-makers, the conference offers a strategic perspective on policy questions affecting the Atlantic Basin.

The 2013 Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program took place in Rabat and consisted of an initial cohort of young professionals at the inception of this intergenerational platform.
