The #wifp story

In November 2013, our founder Lucie Goulet gave a speech at the launch of Foreign Policy think tank Future Foreign Policy about the importance of having more women in the field. #wifp is the practical iteration of her speech and her contribution to changing the situation. 

Foreign Policy at large

To inspire as many girls and women as possible, we decided to not just feature the obvious jobs in government, NGOs and think tanks but to also talk to women in journalism, female novel writers etc. Drop us a line if there is a foreign policy-related job you'd like to learn more about, or a woman whose career advice you'd really like to hear and we'll do our best to feature her. 


Lucie has over eight years' experience in creating inspiring digital content about foreign policy and fashion in both English and French, her mother tongue. She has contributed to think tank Future Foreign Policy before joining their Advisory Board as Content and Social Media Strategy officer. Her writing focuses on the role of women in foreign policy and on fashion as an expression of soft power, a field that combines her interest in international relations with her expertise in fashion and the luxury industry. 

Lucie is available for speaking engagements. Topics previously covered include the need for more women in foreign policy at a Future Foreign Policy event; UK military interventions and the war in Iraq as part of the Changing Britain Festival at London's Southbank Centre.
