As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.
Meet the Council is an event series hosted by the Atlantic Council’s Office of Human Resources and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council to promote the work and opportunities of our organization. These events take place during Black History Month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, for example, to engage historically marginalized groups as the Atlantic Council looks to grow its workforce to better reflect our diversifying nation. Panelists will share their personal experiences, career paths, and answer questions from registered attendees.
The staff, fellows, and interns of the Atlantic Council are a group of foreign policy change-makers committed to achieving real-world impact through world-class research paired with innovative methods and engagement with a wide range of stakeholders. We write papers, host roundtables, produce reports, and analyze the world around us.
The Council cherishes its status as a diverse international organization, where those who speak different languages, hold different political views, and come from different national, religious, and ethnic backgrounds draw on their varied experiences to enrich our work. We are building on our strengths to better reflect a global workforce by increasing diversity across race, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or identity, and political and social views at all levels of the organization.
To participate in this interactive event on Thursday, April 29th from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. EST on Zoom, please complete the registration form below.

Black lives also matter in the Arab World
By Tuqa Nusairat
When it comes to the essence of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests—the call for an end to systematic and systemic racial discrimination—there is less willingness on the part of many people in the Arab world to acknowledge that such issues also afflict the Gulf, the Levant, and North Africa.

The Middle East is a growing marketplace, not just a war zone
By Amjad Ahmad
The region is vast and complex, and outsiders who do not fully understand its nations or peoples overlook the nuances of the nearly twenty countries that make up the Middle East.

Which hacker group is most like your astrological sign?
By Safa Shahwan Edwards and June Lee
Which cyber Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) is most like your astrological sign? After all, behind every cyber operation is a human, led by his or her values and decisions, which can be shaped by one’s astrological sign. These APT-sign pairings provide a guide to some of the most dangerous cyber threat actors and perhaps even a forecast of their prospects for success.
