Foreign Policy Round Table Sponsored by BNY Mellon Wealth Management Thursday, November 20, 2014 Two experienced professionals in the diplomatic, intelligence and national security communities will discuss the tools you will need to take your place in the world of the 21st century. They will explore how the foreign service and intelligence communities identify, recruit, and develop individuals to steer the nation’s future course, and offer insights into how those who make foreign policy find and succeed in their positions. In addition, the discussion will include how young professionals can identify and develop their own global leadership skills, regardless of whether those skills will be used in government service or the private sector. Our guest panelists for this Round Table are: Amb. Adrian A. Basora is a Senior Fellow at FPRI and the Director of its Project on Democratic Transitions. A career Foreign Service officer, Amb.
