 "International exchange and educational programs like Fulbright, EMDAP, and others implemented by IIE play a critical role in bridging cultural divides and helping to restore the mutually respectful and constructive partnerships we need to address the ever broadening range of critical global challenges facing us all," said Her Majesty Queen Noor.

Her Majesty, Chair of the King Hussein Foundation, made these remarks while addressing an audience of 220 leading executives, diplomats, and philanthropists at the Institute of International Education (IIE) New Leaders Benefit “A Celebration of Fulbright,” was held at Jumeirah Essex House in New York City Honorees were Nathan Collett, Filmmaker and U.S. Fulbright to Kenya, and Alberto Vitale, Former Chairman & CEO of Random House and Italian Fulbright Alumnus.

Sponsored by Sandell Asset Management, the dinner brought together an impressive group of leaders – including Maryam Ansary, Marianne Boesky, Nicole Deaner, Swedish Ambassador Ulf Hjertonsson, Gloria and Henry Jarecki, Ann and Tom Johnson, Robin and Anton Katz, Dolores Lampert, Amalia Dayan and Adam Lindemann, Kristin and Doug Londal, Lisa and Matt Lori, Susie and Patrick McCloskey, Nicolo Nourafchan, Camilla Ohlsson, Ximena and Tom Sandell and Tara and Michael Rockefeller, Tom Russo and Goldman Sachs philanthropy executive Dina Habib Powell – to raise awareness of the critical importance today of fostering mutual understanding between the United States and other countries around the world.  The event also included 24 grantees of the Fulbright Program, the U.S. Department of State’s flagship international educational exchange program administered by IIE since 1946, who are working on projects to advance international cooperation and address some of the more intractable problems of our time, such as poverty, disease, conflict, and violence.

For over 90 years, IIE's mission has been to promote international cooperation and to develop leaders who are able to tackle the urgent problems of our world, such as poverty, disease, and terrorism, which can only be resolved on a global basis.  Founded in 2002, the IIE New Leaders Group is helping to bring new energy and vision to this mission, which is more important today than ever before.
