GMF Leadership Alumni Directory

The German Marshall Fund (GMF) would like to welcome you to its Leadership Alumni Directory. Over the past month, hundreds of alumni of GMF leadership programs have registered for GMF’s new online Leadership Alumni Directory.  Don’t miss your chance to remain connected to the transatlantic leadership community. 

GMF urges all alumni of leadership programs to update their information. This new online directory features links to other forms of social media and offers a high tech and sophisticated way to stay at the cutting edge of transatlantic relationship building. Alumni included in this directory and with access privileges have completed one of the following programs:

Marshall Memorial Fellowship (MMF): Created in 1982 to introduce a new generation of European leaders to the United States, MMF grew in 1999 with a companion program that began sending emerging leaders from the United States to Europe. GMF awards 75 Marshall Memorial Fellowships each year to the best and brightest from all sectors, including business, government, and civil society. Selected fellows engage in 6 months of preparation designed to enhance their understanding of transatlantic relations before embarking on 24 days of transatlantic exchange to examine common concerns for Europe and the United States. MMF alumni network now numbers nearly 2,500 leaders.

Manfred Wörner Seminar (MWS): Started in 1982 as the Multiplikatoren Seminar (Multiplier Seminar) and co-sponsored by the German Marshall Fund and the Armed Forces Office of the German Defense Ministry, the annual Manfred Wörner Seminar brings together 30 young Americans and Germans to examine German and European security policy and to discuss U.S.–German and U.S.–European security interests. The seminar serves to deepen understanding between participants from both countries and offers an excellent opportunity to broaden professional networks and horizons. The ten-day program takes place each year in May or June, and consists of briefings and dialogues with senior security experts and practitioners and site visits. The MWS network numbers 1,000 leaders.

Transatlantic Inclusion Leadership Network (TILN): The Transatlantic Inclusion leaders Network (TILN) trains young, diverse elected officials from the United States and Europe in the policy setting of Brussels Forum. TILN leaders form a dynamic network; are introduced to top policymakers; are empowered with the skills, confidence, and connections to compete for higher office; and are ready to engage in public service at higher levels of responsibility. The TILN network now includes 60 leaders. 

The online directory is a tool to help alumni re-connect and find new contacts. We hope it serves as a useful resource in connecting you with leaders in GMF’s network.
