In this session we will learn from former Ambassadors about the process of being appointed to an Ambassadorship and how to be successful upon confirmation. The role of Ambassadors is special and unique. Many are selected from the foreign service, but each Administration will also select some political appointees from outside the State Department to fill these roles. The session will address the entire timeline of the appointments process, including how to be selected, special considerations for vetting and Senate confirmation, and what happens upon confirmation.
During the webinar, Ambassador Kennedy provided a this amazing list of resources for women who are interested in learning more!
