Katie Hahn, a graduate student at the Silver School of Social Work at New York University, has been named as one of 24 American and European recipients of the 2015 Diplomacy and Diversity Fellowship. The Fellowship is awarded by Humanity in Action, an international educational organization that promotes human rights, diversity, and active citizenship.
Hahn and the other 2015 Fellows were selected from a competitive pool of more than 400 American and European applicants.
The Fellows will join in an intensive and intellectually challenging program on international relations and global diversity in Washington, DC, Berlin, and Paris. During the program, May 29 to June 28, they will meet with influential leaders from governments, multinational corporations, and nongovernmental organizations to explore how American and European governments and nongovernmental actors are responding to a wide variety of international issues, with a focus on issues of pluralism. Issues include: democracy from domestic and international perspectives; the influence of non-state actors—including businesses, non-profits and interest groups—in foreign affairs; the impact of technology in foreign policy; national security, conflict and reconciliation; the European Union’s diplomatic agenda; and immigration and refugees. The students will ultimately write and publish a research issue, published by Humanity in Action, on a subject relating to global diversity.
Hahn’s program at the Silver School includes a concentration in macro practice and international social work. She also serves as an intern at the Center for Evidence Based Implementation and Research, where she conducts program evaluations and assists with evidence-based model implementation. Previously, she worked in the mental health and education fields both in the U.S. and abroad. Born and raised in New York City, she received her undergraduate degree in social studies from Harvard.
