Transatlantic Leadership Seminar
Our next Transatlantic Leadership Seminar will take a cohort of 20 leaders from Europe and the United States to key regions across California and Mexico to explore the future of globalization. The program will look at the impact of global economic integration on agriculture, manufacturing, finance, and commerce, as well as the implications of the greater mobility of people and global convergence of ideas and values for culture, community, and politics at the local, national, and international level. The cohort will focus on current and emerging trends, exploring strategies that successful organizations apply to innovate and grow. Meetings will be with leaders from the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, the United States-Mexico border, and Mexico City. The program will take place from November 11-19, 2017.
Registration is offered on a first come, first serve basis and is now open to all alumni of the German Marshall Fund’s (GMF) leadership programs.
GMF’s Transatlantic Leadership Seminar enables leaders from business, government, and civil society to stay at the forefront of trends in the 21st century. The Seminar offers insights on how to lead with agility, decipher complexity, and identify new opportunities. Each rendition lasts seven to nine days, is expert led, and takes place in a region experiencing rapid change. Participants engage with more than 40 leaders in open, frank, and dynamic conversations, and benefit from firsthand experience and group reflection. The seminars rely on GMF’s extensive network of partners and 35-plus years of strategic convening to offer programs of the highest quality.
Previous seminars examined strategies for great recession in Greece and Italy in 2015; global north-south cooperation in France and Morocco in 2014; and post-conflict reconciliation and reform in Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia in 2013.
Transatlantic Leadership Seminars are exclusive to members of GMF’s transatlantic leadership network, which includes alumni of the following programs: the Marshall Memorial Fellowship, Manfred Wörner Seminar, Transatlantic Inclusion Leaders Network, Asmus Policy Entrepreneurs Fellowship, APSA Congressional Fellowship, and New Länder Fellowship.
