2015 Young Leaders meeting

The Young Leaders program is the flagship program of the French-American Foundation and continues to be central to the Foundation’s success in deepening understanding between France and the United States. The 2015 annual meeting took place on October 21-25 in Denver.

Background

The Young Leaders Program takes small groups of carefully selected up-and-coming leaders in government, business, media, military, culture and the non-profit sector and provides them with the opportunity to spend five days together discussing issues of common concern and, more importantly, getting to know each other. 

Organized in collaboration with our sister Foundation in France, the program was created in 1981 in response to observations that the close working relationships between French and American leaders in the post-war period were waning as new, younger leaders rose with little exposure to their transatlantic counterparts.
