Jacinda Ardern, current Prime Minister of New Zealand, has gained international recognition for strong, compassionate leadership. Ardern participated in an International Visitor Leadership Program in 2012 as a Member of Parliament.

On her program, Ardern and fellow participants studied the formulation of U.S. foreign policy in addressing security concerns and maintaining foreign relations. One of her fellow participants said, "Jacinda Ardern has inspired young women around the world, proving that neither age, gender, nor motherhood are barriers to reaching your fullest potential."
