President Biden’s decision to pull the remaining American military personnel from Afghanistan by September 11 opens a window of uncertainty for the stability and future of the country, especially for the Afghan women and the younger generation. Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Federica Mogherini, former high representative of the European Union for foreign affairs and security policy, will discuss the Afghan situation and how a full range of diplomatic, security, and financial levers can be employed in partnership with the people of Afghanistan to advance durable peace and security. Stephen Heintz, president and CEO of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, will moderate the program.

“In the midst of a global pandemic and all that we are being confronted with as a society, this year we are also celebrating 90 years since our founding. Merging with Global Minds is a historic moment for us,” said President and CEO, World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, Betty Cruz. She continued, “What a beautiful way to signal that we believe that global education and engagement has the power to transform lives across generations.” The Council is also set to release its three-year strategic plan later this month, which prioritizes youth voices and increasing participation of underrepresented communities across all programs.
