Diversity and Leadership in International Affairs Project
Through a partnership established in 2017, the ICAP Alumni Association and the Center for International Strategic Studies (CSIS) will showcase and promote diversity in U.S. foreign affairs. The project will draw primarily on the 470 Fellows of the International Career Advancement Program (ICAP) at Aspen who are mid to senior level foreign affairs experts. It will bring new voices and perspectives to discussions of U.S. foreign policy and global engagement.
ICAP Aspen: Founded by Dr. Thomas Rowe of the University of Denver, the ICAP seminar at the Aspen Institute brings professionals with proven records of achievement from government, non-profits, foundations, international organizations, academia, and the private sector and puts them together with senior government officials, business leaders, faculty at the University of Denver, and other advisors. Out of ICAP emerges a powerful pipeline of driven, committed future senior leaders in U.S. foreign affairs.
ICAP Alumni Association (ICAPAA): The ICAP Alumni Association (ICAP AA) is a non-profit organization which represents the 470 Fellows. The Alumni Association provides members unique opportunities to network, mentor, build skills, and engage in community outreach. The Association also serves as an important catalyst for increasing diversity in senior management and policymaking roles. http:/www.icapaa.org
