2023 Summer Diplomacy & Leadership Workshop 

The 8th Summer Diplomacy & Leadership Workshop is tentatively scheduled to be split into a virtual component, followed by a return to in-person on the Emory University campus.  This free workshop will be Monday - Friday over a two week period using Zoom.  The first week will be virtual using Zoom and will involve numerous speakers on topics ranging from civil communication, conflict resolution, peacebuilding, diplomacy, the US Foreign Service, and several international issues.  It will attempt to build connections between students in different states and promote joint community projects between schools.  The second week will be in-person and focus on building upon the information learned in the virtual week, culminating in a US National Security Council simulation.  Students who are able to participate in both weeks will be considered to be members of the 8th Cohort.
  The workshop is only for rising juniors (Class of 2025) and rising seniors (Class of 2024) in high school.  Applications are required for this workshop. Students in the metro area who are accepted into the workshop will be expected to participate both weeks.  Students who are not within driving distance of Emory University can participate in the first week online and will have the benefit of hearing many great speakers and making connections with students from multiple states.   Click on the button in red below to find out more information about the workshop and request an application, which will be available in January 2023.
