MIPP student Major Ebony Thomas was promoted last week to Lt. Col. in the US Army. In a promotion ceremony held in her honor at the Women's Memorial Museum, friends, family, and colleagues celebrated Ebony's personal and professional accomplishments throughout the years. "Having the opportunity to celebrate Ebony's promotion and learning a little bit more about her life achievements was both inspiring and humbling," said Prof. Laila Sorurbakhsh, who was in attendance. "Ebony is truly a leader both inside and outside the classroom." The timing of Ebony's promotion also coincides with the implementation of her Capstone project, which addresses Ethical Leadership.

This year GW's Master's in International Policy and Practice (MIPP) decided to update the introduction to its Conflict Resolution Class by focusing on new, emerging complex conflicts, such as privileged violence, violent extremism and hybrid wars. Perpetrators of these types of violence rely heavily on violence against women to achieve their political objectives and to normalize violence in social and political life. Thus, a significant focus of the class was on the drivers of violence against women and conflict resolution approaches for preventing and ending it. GEIA supported the update of the curriculum by suggesting resources. Student Sophia Bagnall conducted a gender analysis of the Houthi movement and insurgency in Yemen using a framework developed by the United Nations.
Professor Lauren Van Metre looked for ways to engage the class in policy panels and discussion sessions on GBV, including a number of events held in support of the United Nation's global advocacy campaign, Orange the World: 16 Days of Activism to End Gender-Based Violence. The class wore orange and posted a screen shot on their social media accounts. One of the students, Rudi Balay, led an Instagram Live discussion in a human rights group she belongs to called Human Rights Post. The discussion focused on violence against women in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

Have you read about Brooke Pearson, MIPP ’16?
Brooke is the Manager of the Privacy Sandbox at Google and has had an active role in advocating for issues of race.

She poses the question:

“What if this could look different?"

In the tech industry, disruption is sought as a way
to shake up the space, develop new products and
platforms and create the next big thing. Disruption
as it has happened so far in 2020, has forced tech
to a stark moment of introspection. In a year that
has seen massive social mobilization following
the murders of George Floyd and Breonna
Taylor. Brooke Pearson, MIPP ’16, has used her
platform, achievements, voice, and experience to
ask a pertinent question “What if this could look
different?” Pearson joined a social media movement
called Share the Mic in Cyber, one of many similar
initiatives that appeared in 2020. Share the Mic
enables influencers and those in positions of power
to amplify the voices of advocates and allies in discussing the racial issues that dominate the news all while showing
that representation matters. Having worked at the Department of State and Facebook before joining Uber, she
is no stranger to workplaces that struggle to fully grasp the lack of diversity in not just their workforce, but in the
products and services they provide. By offering her passion, energy, talent and platform, Pearson is talking about the
experience of being Black in America, to an audience that until recently, wasn’t listening closely enough.

Native Cinema Showcase 11/12/2020

GW has recently started sharing it's land acknowledgement before many of our presentations and forums. If you are not familiar with the land that the GW foggy-bottom campus was built upon, here is some information:
This land acknowledgement is borrowed from our friends at the AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics and Policy at the George Washington University:
"The AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics and Policy (CIPP) acknowledges that it resides on the traditional and ancestral homelands of
the Piscataway and Anacostan peoples, who have served as
stewards of the region for generations."
The AT&T CIPP is located on The George Washington University's Foggy Bottom Campus in downtown Washington, D.C. The District of Columbia borders the confluence of the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers, a historic center of trade and cultural exchange between several tribal nations. For generations, the Piscataway and Anacostian Peoples have resided in this region and served as stewards of the local land and waterways. Their people continue to thrive in the region and still honor and celebrate their culture and relationship with the land.

International Development Fellows Program 10/19/2020

Apply for the Catholic Relief Services’ International Development Fellows Program! - Deadline is November 1st

In recent years, graduate students from George Washington University have been selected for the Catholic Relief Services’ International Development Fellows Program. Many of them now work with CRS in our U.S. and overseas offices. As we seek to continue engaging graduate students and recent alumni from George Washington University, I write to request your support in sharing our program information. Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) International Development Fellows Program is a 12-month professional development opportunity, designed for individuals dedicated to a career in international relief and development.

CRS is one of the largest and most trusted international relief and development organizations. In more than 100 countries worldwide, CRS promotes transformative and sustainable change by using holistic approaches, engaging people at all levels, and tailoring our work to the needs of the people we serve.

As an organization that celebrates and promotes diversity, and which is committed to the ongoing work of racial equity, we welcome students of all backgrounds and nationalities. We encourage international students and those historically underrepresented in the international development field to join our diverse global workforce in seeking innovative, sustainable solutions to the world’s most challenging problems.

International Development Fellows are prepared for success in a range of managerial roles with CRS overseas by completing foundational training in project management, project design and proposal development, systems and operations, and partnership. Fellows build their skills in sustainable programming and effective operations by working alongside experienced staff in a CRS office overseas. Fellows take leading and supporting roles on a variety of CRS projects during the fellowship year (often gaining exposure to programming in Agriculture, Health, Emergency Response and Recovery, Education, and more). Most Fellows matriculate to managerial roles with CRS overseas upon successful completion of the program.

Candidates are required to have:

· a graduate degree (by August 2021);

· relevant overseas experience;

· excellent English communication skills (writing and speaking);

· professional proficiency in a second language and;

· a commitment to the work of CRS.

The Fellowship application will be open until November 1, 2020. We encourage candidates to visit the International Development Fellows website to learn more about the program structure, core learning areas, requirements, application and selection process, and to see the dates and times of our online information sessions.

Strengthening U.S. Strategic Influence: How to Make IMET the Most Powerful Tool in the Security Cooperation Toolkit 08/18/2020

FAOA Journal of International Affairs published MIPP Alum Major Thomas Dyrenforth's article based on his leadership capstone project, "Strengthening U.S. Strategic Influence: How to Make IMET the Most Powerful Tool in the Security Cooperation Toolkit."

"Since time is a precious resource for all stakeholders, it is vital to create a system that is standardized and simple. The first two steps will likely require external support to accomplish. Contracted assistance from knowledge management and metrics analysis professionals could help establish baseline metrics that are scientifically rigorous and realistically measurable."

The Diplomat published MIPP Alum Ahmad Mohibi's latest article "With the Final Prisoner Release, Afghanistan Takes A Giant Step Towards Peace."

"Now, Afghanistan’s future looks promising because its political community, members of civil society organizations, members of the press, and citizens are all eager to start the intra-Afghan talks. Nearly two decades of war with the Taliban have left nothing but scars, sorrow, destruction, and devastation. The world has come to understand that peace talks, a political settlement, and negotiations are the best-applied approach in the case of Afghanistan."
