The Heritage Foundation’s Heather Pfitzenmaier recently represented the conservative movement at an international convention of world leaders in Switzerland.
Pfitzenmaier, who directs Heritage’s Young Leaders Program, attended the St. Gallen Symposium, which features debates among world leaders about economic, political, and social issues.
This year’s conference focused on “the clash of generations,” especially how the views of the Millennial generation (those born roughly between 1980 and 2000) relate to those of older generations.
As the Director of the Young Leaders Program, Pfitzenmaier understands the importance of the conservative vision and the role young minds play in protecting America’s founding principles. The future of liberty depends on equipping the next generation with a strong foundation in these core ideas.
For example, Pfitzenmaier leads Heritage’s internship program to prepare young leaders to take on new responsibilities in the conservative movement.
