IVLP Gold Stars: Rosana Schaack
June 27, 2018 - June 30, 2018
Ms. Rosana Schaack, an alumna from the U.S. Department of State’s IVLP exchange in 2006, will return to the U.S. as part of the “Gold Stars’: Alumni Connecting the World” program. Ms. Schaack, a native of Liberia, is the executive director of Touching Humanity in Need of Kindness (THINK), a nonprofit that focuses on the rights and well-being of women and children exposed to violence. The program seeks to examine the direct impact the IVLP has on participants, their communities, and their home countries in support of U.S. policy priorities. By visiting Cleveland, this alumna will share insights on addressing the needs of women and children and efforts in countering gender-based violence.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at email@example.com or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
