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 Pride 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 Wednesday, October 6th from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. EDT on Zoom, please complete the registration form below.

By Sarah Hennessey
For a decade, Bolivia has existed under two flags, that have represented the country’s distinct cultural heritages. Now, facing uncertain new elections, it remains to be seen if indigenous and non-indigenous Bolivians will be able to find a common path towards stability and the reinstitution of democratic norms.

Gender equality can accelerate Latin America’s post-COVID-19 recovery: Men and boys must take part
By Valentina Sader, Cristina Guevara
In Latin America and the Caribbean, this year’s Human Rights Day marks a grim trend as COVID-19 sets back decades of progress for women and girls. And without enlisting everyone, including men, in the fight for women’s empowerment, society’s ability to achieve gender equality is limited.
