In a globalized era when many countries continue to face challenges of racism, intolerance, and inequity, both the United States and Europe stand to benefit from a visionary new generation of leaders who are dedicated to the principles of open and inclusive institutions.

The Transatlantic Inclusion Leaders Network (TILN) fellowship is an empowering program for young diverse elected leaders, with select civil society and business leaders, who collaborate, peer mentor, and educate each other in working to advance inclusive policies and strengthen social cohesion. The program also features dedicated coaches and partners. The TILN network has more than 200 alumni advancing to higher office including the European Parliament and US Congress, among other roles. Through TILN, The German Marshall Fund (GMF) provides a unique opportunity to meet 21st-century leadership requirements, for it is crucial that institutions reflect the diversity of societies across the Atlantic and foster equity, inclusion, and belonging.

GMF is delighted to announce that we have resumed in-person fellowship travels after a two-year hiatus. This June, the Transatlantic Inclusion Leaders Network welcomed its 2022 cohort to an immersion week in Brussels, culminating in their participation in Brussels Forum, GMF’s signature conference.

TILN has grown to be an integral element of GMF Leadership Programs since it was first founded in 2012 as a cooperative effort of the GMF, the US Department of State, and the US Helsinki Commission
