Women have excelled in foreign service and had an important diplomatic impact for our nation. Tonight we welcome leaders in the field including ambassadors, diplomats, and academics who will discuss their experiences, explore critical viewpoints, and offer advice to young women entering the field of American foreign service. Moderated by journalist and author Cokie Roberts, panelists include Ambassador Melanne Verveer, Executive Director, Georgetown University’s Institute for Women, Peace & Security; Susan Rockwell Johnson, President of the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training; Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Distinguished Resident Fellow in African Studies at the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy, Georgetown University; and Ambassador Fay Hartog-Levin, Distinguished Fellow, Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

This program is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation with the generous support of the William G. McGowan Charitable Fund.
