The Pacific Council on International Policy invites you to celebrate the inaugural class of AMPLIFY Fellows at the Pitch Day and Culmination Ceremony, where all eight fellows will present their local-to-global pitch project to the public. AMPLIFY is the Pacific Council's inaugural leadership development fellowship that is geared towards early to mid-career professionals who have traditionally been underrepresented in international affairs.

The Pacific Council aims to be a national advocate for diversity in foreign policy by amplifying diverse voices and creating opportunities for emerging leaders who are doing globally-oriented work in their local communities.
