Emerging Leaders 2016
The German Marshall Fund of the United States and the OCP Policy Center are proud to announce the fifth edition of the Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program. Held under the theme “Changing Mental Maps: Strategies for an Atlantic in Transition,” this unique opportunity for rising leaders will take place December 12-16, 2016, in Marrakesh, Morocco. The program will precede and include The Atlantic Dialogues.
About the Emerging Leaders Program
Changing mental maps and asserting an Atlantic vision can only be reinforced when the next generation of leaders is given a place at the table to challenge the established perspectives and push the conversations forward. Over the two days of the program, the 2016 Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program combines policy workshops, creative thinking, professional leadership training, peer-to-peer learning, and opportunities for networking and exchange. The emerging leaders will then be invited to participate in The Atlantic Dialogues conference. The organizers will provide selected emerging leaders the opportunity to contribute to panels during The Atlantic Dialogues based on their expertise and experience in order to foster real intergenerational dialogue. The 2016 Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program will conclude with a closing session on December 16, 2016.
Through discussions and debates with peers as well as with established policy, business and civil society leaders, the selected pace shapers will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge, sharpen their skills, and network with the other members of this growing community.
The Atlantic Dialogues
Launched in 2012, The Atlantic Dialogues is a leading annual forum for decision-makers to discuss global issues and partnerships, with an emphasis on the Southern Atlantic and transatlantic relations beyond North-North lines. This high-level gathering is a unique opportunity for leaders from the four continents of the Atlantic to debate the changing dynamics across the wider basin and help shape the transatlantic agenda.
