Benefits of being a part of TeamIFE?
One of the many benefits of being an IFE intern is getting an insider’s view as thought leaders, game changers, and opinion leaders speak to Washington’s leadership audience and witnessing the collaboration and conversation of soft diplomacy and civility in action. Check out our list of Past Speakers and Events.
These are conversations that are not lost to the echoes of a cavernous room, but nestled and nurtured in the intimate settings of IFE’s event venues that range from embassies, diplomat residences, the White House, Federal Agencies and clubs. Attendance at such forums is priceless.
