Ambassador Hosts Kick-Off Event for Rising Leaders Program

On April 25, Ambassador Kenneth Braithwaite hosted a kick-off event for Rising Leaders at Villa Otium. Rising Leaders is an initiative of the Embassy of the United States of America and the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Norway to provide access for young, up-and-coming leaders from diverse backgrounds to high-level representatives of the established business community.

The initiative will hold quarterly events that will allow participants to engage business leaders, learn about AmCham member companies, and gain business and leadership skills.  The Embassy and AmCham have selected 23 participants for the 2018/19 cycle of the program.
