Gold members (GMs) will be invited to participate in R.A.R.E Talent initiatives, interagency networking forums, and TLG-sponsored and co-sponsored State Department and USAID events.
GMs will also receive a No Host invitation to attend semi-annual “Lifetime Membership Appreciation Luncheons” to be held at the State Department 7th floor dining room. TLG will seek the attendance of senior level officers from the Secretary’s office (e.g. the Deputy Secretary of State, Director General) and the Assistant Secretaries or Principal Deputy Secretary Assistant Secretaries from the Regional bureaus. The semi-annual quarterly luncheons will provide a forum for senior Department officials to update Lifetime and Gold Members on the Department’s and Regional Bureau’s Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, as well as lines of effort to recruit and retain African-American officers.
Finally, GMs will be invited to an annual TLG Town Hall at both the State Department and USAID to engage TLG Leadership on progress made implementing the R.A.R.E Talent Initiative. The town hall will include a strategy review discussion to bolster TLG’s effective engagement with senior State Department and USAID leadership.
