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 Women’s History Month and Black History 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 Monday, June 28th from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. EDT on Zoom, please complete the registration form below.
