The Truman National Security Project is proud to announce the selection of the 2023 Truman Member Class. This class, which includes nearly 100 national security professionals, is one of the most diverse classes in Truman history. Half are women, nearly 40% identify as BIPOC, 14% are first generation college graduates, 16% are first generation Americans, and over half come from outside of Washington, D.C.
“Truman is thrilled to welcome these new members to our community,” said Truman Project President and CEO Jenna Ben-Yehuda. “This 2023 member class represents the most dynamic and diverse generation of foreign policy and national security talent, and will help bring about a more inclusive, smarter U.S. foreign policy that advances our shared prosperity and security. We are excited to see new members already diving into the Truman community and look forward to welcoming them and others in person at #TruCon in Washington, DC in June 2023.”
