GW Grads Named to “99 under 33” Foreign Policy Leaders List

Several members of the GW alumni community were recently named to the 2013 99 Most Influential Foreign Policy Leaders Under the Age of 33 list (“99 under 33”).

This list recognizes a community of some of the brightest and most innovative minds of the time, nominated and chosen by a peer group of Millennials. Compiled by the Diplomatic Courier and Young Professionals in Foreign Policy, 99 under 33 is divided into seven recognition categories:

Catalysts—from a field not typically associated with foreign policy who has had an impact on international affairs
Conveners—bring people together in creative ways to address a pressing international issue or enhance the foreign policy community.
Influencers—mobilize people in the foreign policy community with bold new ideas.
Innovators—design a new solution to a critical global challenge.
Practitioners—change foreign policy from the inside through extraordinary professionalism and skill.
Risk-takers—take a chance and see it pay off.
Shapers—change the public discourse on an aspect of foreign policy or raise awareness on a critical issue.

The 2013 GW honorees include:

Carmiel Arbit, ESIA BA ’06, assistant director of policy and government affairs at AIPAC
