Africa Program Hosts the Osgood Center
On Tuesday, July 31, 2018, the Africa Program staff and interns hosted students and program associates from the Osgood Center, a non-profit educational organization that offers short-term foreign policy programs and experiential learning to graduate, college, and high school students from around the globe. The Africa Program provided background knowledge of the Wilson Center and the work the program does under the Southern Voices Network for Peacebuilding, the Brown Capital Management Africa Forum, the Sudan Working Group, in addition to discussing Africa's evolving role in the global arena. Students left the Wilson Center with a better understanding of Africa's current and future role in the global sphere, and best practices for navigating internships and careers.
