The Orientation Division within the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) has partnered with HR’s Office of Continuity Counseling to facilitate employee-centric mentor dialogue sessions for new Foreign Service officers in orientation training. Most recently, members from the 99th A-100 class returned to FSI to mentor the 199th A-100 class. These two groups of officers—that are 100 training classes apart—discussed pertinent topics including mentoring, diversity, inclusion and boosting professional development. The division is planning for the 200th A-100 class, starting in September, to be mentored by the 100th A-100 class.
