We are excited to announce a discussion about women in public service, highlighting WPSP, to take place at the Transatlantic Inclusion Leaders training event in Copenhagen April 22-24.
Co-sponsored by Copenhagen’s Mayor for Integration, the Danish-Ethnic Youth Council, the U.S. Department of State, and the German Marshall Fund, the Transatlantic Inclusion Leaders training presents an opportunity to strengthen relations between emerging minority leaders in the United States and Europe. Over the course of three days, sixty young elected leaders and civil society advocates – representing more than 20 different countries – will investigate the challenges facing minority leaders on both sides of the Atlantic as well as exchange best practices to overcome these challenges. One of the primary aims of this event is to build a self-sustaining, transatlantic network of young elected leaders who are dedicated to building more inclusive governments.
It is within this larger event that Ambassador Laurie Fulton and State Department’s Special Representative for Global Intergovernmental Affairs Reta Jo Lewis will lead the April 24 early morning discussion about increasing the representation of women in public service around the world, with a focus on women in elected office. This WPSP conversation is scheduled for April 24 from 8-9 AM.
We will post a summary of the event on our site– be sure to tune in and tweet the event!
