With technology playing an increasingly critical role in every aspect of the knowledge economy, companies recognize the need to accelerate the development of digital solutions to ensure they remain on the competitive vanguard.

This track record of bringing together emerging global leaders also feeds into the GlobalWonks vision – an agile system of accessing global knowledge, powered by improved technology and worldwide connectivity to top talent,” said Bilal Baloch, GlobalWonks’ Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer. “Through our network collaboration, this partnership will allow YPFP to drive more valuable and substantive opportunities for their experts on the ground and lead GlobalWonks to nurture further impact for our clients.”

“YPFP aims to increase our members’ access to skills, resources and opportunities that advance their burgeoning careers in foreign policy. We are delighted to partner with GlobalWonks to provide our members with direct access to employment opportunities as foreign policy experts. YPFP believes that the field of foreign policy must become more accessible and inclusive,” said Aubrey Cox, YPFP’s Executive Director. “This partnership directly contributes to that goal.”

In addition to intertwining our respective networks, GlobalWonks and YPFP will collaborate on joint events and fora to enhance the exposure of global knowledge professionals around the world. This partnership represents a step-change in the way both organizations address the needs of the global knowledge economy.
