Join the US-China Education Trust on June 14, 2018 as we discuss the status of women in diplomacy today, explore why the lack of women in diplomacy should be of concern and survey the current outlook of women in diplomacy.

This special event will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the US-China Education Trust and mark 25 years since USCET Founding President Julia Chang Bloch served as the first Asian American Ambassador of the United States. It will also celebrate the 26th year of the Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowships, a flagship recruitment program dedicated to increasing Foreign Service diversity and named after one of America’s most distinguished diplomats and a USCET Advisory Council member. 

The program will include keynote speakers, a dinner reception, and a panel discussion on the status of women in diplomacy today. We very much hope to see you on this special occasion as we look to encourage, inspire, and address barriers limiting women in the diplomatic field.

This event is generously underwritten by Accume Partners and Mark Erwin, CAA.

Supported by the American Mandarin Society, Asian American Foreign Affairs Association (AAFAA), Conference on Asian Pacific American Leadership (CAPAL), Council of American Ambassadors (CAA), Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), naisA Global, Organization of Chinese Americans -- DC Chapter (OCA-DC), Organization of Chinese American Women (OCAW), and Women’s Foreign Policy Group (WFPG).
