ICAP Character and Mission


THE FUNDAMENTAL AIM of the International Career Advancement Program (ICAP) is to improve the quality of the leadership of the United States in international affairs by helping to ensure that it reflects the full diversity of the US population.  It is a program started in 1997, funded by outside grants, donations and sponsorships.  ICAP seeks to accomplish its aim by assisting highly promising mid-career professionals in the U.S. in international business and public affairs to have a more effective voice and to achieve senior administrative and policy-making positions in government agencies, non-profit groups and the private sector.  This assistance takes the form of providing leadership training, career advising, assistance in policy analysis and implementation, wider social networks, career contacts and a strong support group for these mid-career professionals, thus helping them to achieve their full potential.
