GLOBSEC Young Leaders' Forum Taps NYU Wagner Global EMPA Student Jayson Browder

Congratulations, Jayson Browder, a student in NYU Wagner’s Global EMPA program! He has been selected to participate in the GLOBSEC Young Leaders' Forum 2015 – one of 35 newly selected participants from a variety of backgrounds and from 29 countries. Over 300 applicants, aged 25 to 35, had applied from 61 countries.

“We took into consideration a number of criteria including leadership potential, interest and commitment to transatlantic relations, foreign policy, security and ability to contribute to and benefit from the forum’s experience," according to the GLOBSEC announcement.

In the next two months leading up to the forum, Browder and the other participants — from places such as Accra, Canberra, Islmabad, Washington, D.C., and Moscow — will have a rare opportunity to evaluate and provide strategic policy proposals and plans for action for the main panels of the GLOBSEC Young Leaders' Forum on a group of topics.

“We aim to engage the participants in the lasting debate on the strengthening of transatlantic relations and we are looking forward to welcoming them to the wider GLOBSEC community,” according to the announcement.

Browder, a decorated US Air Force veteran, is a Presidential Management Fellow and a former Fulbright scholar.
