Women's Foreign Policy Group

Since its founding 20 years ago, WFPG has been committed to promoting women’s leadership and voices in international affairs through our in-depth global issues programming and mentoring activities. A key player in broadening the constituency for international affairs, WFPG brings together participants from across disciplines and links women domestically and internationally. We believe that through highlighting women leaders in foreign policy, we provide important role models for the next generation and create a vital network of women from different sectors, generations, and backgrounds. The organization’s frequent, in-depth global issues programming feature women officials, journalists, authors, academics and other news-makers and highlight their contributions to the field. Our seminars, special events, and conferences take members beyond the headlines and provide context for key global challenges. At our Celebrating Women Leaders Luncheons, WFPG honors key women leaders in international affairs. Speakers have included: Condoleezza Rice, Hillary Clinton, and Madeleine Albright; UN leaders like UN Women Executive Director Michelle Bachelet and Deputy Secretary General Asha-Rose Migiro; US officials including National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Treasury Under Secretary Lael Brainard.
