Diplomats at Work is a new series targeted toward university students, community colleges and other local organizations throughout the U.S. to share inspiring stories that illustrate the work of the Foreign Service. The event is open to all who are interested in learning more about the Foreign Service. For questions about AFSA’s outreach work, please contact ruzica@afsa.org


The Arctic is a geopolitical hotspot and strengthening the U.S. presence in the Arctic is a foreign policy priority. To that end, in June 2020, U.S. diplomats reopened the U.S. Consulate in Nuuk, Greenland, 67 years after it had been closed.

AFSA’s Diplomats at Work is hosting Eavan Cully, the public affairs officer at U.S. Consulate Nuuk, to hear about her experience working to reopen a long-shuttered consulate in what is now a city that is becoming a center for Arctic issues.

We will discuss the reopening as well as life and work in Greenland for a young U.S. diplomat. There will be opportunities for Q&A.

The event is open to the public.
