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.
