The annual Young Professionals in Foreign Policy Affairs of State Gala brought together members and non-members alike for its hottest event of the year — a celebration of innovative foreign policy and international affairs professionals.
An open bar and live DJ entertained leaders in business, government, diplomacy, non-profits, and the media as they mixed and mingled at Shakespeare Theatre’s Sidney Harman Hall.
Some 400 foreign policy professionals not only celebrated the event’s 15th anniversary, but also honored awardees — rising professionals acting to promote diversity and innovation in foreign policy and national security.
YPFP is the premier organization for young professionals around the globe, with membership spanning 80 countries and 20,000 emerging leaders in international affairs.
The non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to building policy leaders is headquartered in Washington, DC with locations in New York City, Brussels, and London.
