Policy Roundtables and Skills Workshops

A core part of IGP’s mission is to train the next generation of global leaders. IGP hosts Policy Roundtables and Skills Workshops, providing students with unparalleled access to the Inaugural Carnegie Distinguished Fellows and other leading practitioners. These small, closed-door sessions feature discussions on policy topics informed by real-world experience and workshops on policy skills, including speechwriting and campaign staffing.

I think about my students… they will have the opportunity to meet, to get to know, to work with, to learn from being in a classroom with international leaders.
