Last spring, when we called for applications for our third fellowship cycle — a fellowship to support foreign policy interruptors so that we can change the damn ratio and amplify diverse voices — we once again didn’t know what to expect.
Here’s what we got: hundreds of applications from brilliant interruptors around the world. These applicants not only ranged in geographic location, but also in expertise and experience: from Latin America’s turbulent economies to tech in India; transformation in Indonesia to development in Niger; nuclear weapons to climate change and global nutrition. As always, the next time anyone says that there aren’t qualified women in foreign policy – in whatever vertical – we can and will shout back “WRONG.” Narrowing our selection to just four was extremely hard. We wanted to select 50.
We’ve once again assembled a truly talented set of women and we can’t wait to work with them to interrupt foreign policy, enrich the discussion, and change the ratio (and the world). Meet our third class of interruptors: http://bit.ly/FPIFall2016
