To rise to the top in today’s world, leaders from all sectors must think and act globally. Successful leaders recognize the value of collaboration — both to meet their own professional objectives and to forge partnerships that develop sustainable solutions to global problems. To meet these opportunities, GMF offers a portfolio of initiatives for established, mid-career, and next generation leaders who are committed to strengthening transatlantic relations to make a free, prosperous, and peaceful world possible.
GMF provides a nonpartisan platform for transatlantic learning among policymakers on issues of mutual concern. The Congressional Affairs Program provides opportunities to members of the U.S. Congress to stay up to date and informed on transatlantic issues. It does so through regular engagement with both members and their staff. It organizes topical briefings for members or committees, congressional testimony by GMF experts, and regular staff salons. The Congressional Affairs Program also seeks to connect lawmakers on all levels with their counterparts in Europe through events like the Congress-Bundestag Forum and others.
