On July 16, 2022, the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) hosted a Diversity Forum Workshop for Students and Young Professionals as part of its sixth annual Diversity Forum Series. APSIA created the Diversity Forum Series in 2017 to inspire students and young professionals – and those who counsel them – to pursue careers in international affairs. The series particularly focuses on students who are traditionally underrepresented in the field. This year’s student workshop was attended by 50 undergraduates and young professionals from 34 institutions across the US.
RFG was proud to sponsor the event and have three Robertson Alumni participate in one of the sessions, Alum Chats: Moving Forward Professionally “Post” Pandemic. These alumni included Victoria Adofoli (UMD 2022) Cybersecurity Fellow & Technology Policy Advisor, TechCongress; Ana Monzón (Syracuse 2017) Foreign Service Officer at the US Agency for International Development; and Eric Inumerable (UCSD 2020) Research Analyst for the US Trade Development Agency at Ascendant Program Services, LLC.
