Passing the Diplomacy Leadership Torch to the Next Generation

May 11, 2017, 5:30 pm

Citizen Diplomacy is the concept that everyone has the right, even the responsibility, to help shape foreign policy "one handshake at a time." But how will the next generation navigate through diplomacy as they become community leaders?

The next generation is said to be electronically connected to their social networks, advocates providing honest, free, and convincing feedback, hungry for feedback, and with high expectations for rapid career development. Harnessing the talent and loyalty of the next generation will be critical in the next 10 to 15 years’ time as many of these individuals ascend to leadership positions and have an impact on non-traditional diplomacy.

Join us for a conversation that questions the concerns of the retiring leaders as they pass the torch of their legacy on to the next generation, and what does the future of leadership and diplomacy look like to this next generation.

This program is funded in part by a UH Quick Grant to the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy.
