NCAFP Emerging Leaders launch

NCAFP Emerging Leaders launch - December 2nd 2023

On Saturday, December 2nd, the National Committee on American Foreign Policy (NCAFP) launched its inaugural Northern Ireland Emerging Leaders program, a yearlong transatlantic mentorship program for next generation community leaders and policy practitioners from across the region.

The group includes ten community leaders and young professionals who will develop policy ideas on a range of themes, from education, environmental peacebuilding, structural reform, to women, peace, and security. Throughout the year, the participants will develop their policy ideas and present their final paper at a conference in New York City in October 2024.

To maximize opportunities for professional development, the NCAFP has paired each participant with a mentor who will provide guidance throughout the year. The mentors include: Ambassador Paula Dobriansky, Professor Martin Flaherty, Professor Kevin Kenny, Charley Landow, Professor Linda Longmire, Alyse Nelson, Kathryn (Kitty) Pilgrim, Ambassador Nancy Soderberg, Ambassador Barbara Stephenson, and William Tranghese.
