The French-American Foundation celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Young Leaders program in Paris on November 18 and 19.
More than half of our Young Leaders community in France, the United States, and further abroad joined the Foundation for a weekend of meetings, receptions and discussions.
The Young Leaders were welcomed by the American ambassador to France, the Honorable Charles H. Rivkin, and his wife, Susan Tolson. The group held discussions with prominent diplomats before attending the French-American Foundation—France’s gala dinner in Paris, held in their honor. The next day, the Young Leaders participated in a private guided visit to the Palace of Versailles and attended a luncheon with Christophe de Margerie, president and CEO of Total, at the Trianon Palace.
