The First American Women Ambassadors

November 4, 2021 3:00 PM

Join us for a fascinating and inspiring discussion about the first women to serve as Ambassadors from the United States. Professor Phil Nash will present some of highlights of his book profiling the six incredible women who broke through as Ambassadors from 1933-1964. Then we will move into a panel discussion with three recently retired Ambassadors to address the major themes and how those carry over to today.

This event is co-sponsored by Women Ambassadors Serving America (WASA).
