About Diverse Diplomacy Leaders Speaker Series

As part of the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy’s broader mandate to connect students with foreign policy practitioners and professionals to better understand the opportunities and challenges of these careers, in December 2018, 2018 - 2019 Rusk Fellow Caroline Savage launched the Diverse Diplomacy Leaders Speaker Series, a project to connect the Georgetown community with current and former Civil and Foreign Service officers.  Senior practitioners share insights on their careers and diversity and inclusion at the State Department and answer questions from students considering careers in foreign policy.  By including a diverse representation of foreign policy professionals, across generational, gender, religious, and ethnic lines, the series seeks to encourage aspirants from diverse communities to pursue and successfully navigate foreign policy careers.  Each of the series participants has expressed willingness to connect with students or others to discuss their further questions related to careers in foreign policy.
