November Lunch and Learn
11/05/2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Bring your lunch and join us as we hear from Micaela Schweitzer-Bluhm, the new U.S. Department of State Diplomat in Residence!
“A career in the Department of State is always an adventure – mine has been full of unexpected experiences, fascinating encounters, and non-stop learning. When I joined, I could never have predicted the incredible journey on which I was embarking. Each new assignment brings its own exciting opportunities and challenges. Some of my most interesting experiences have been: assisting North Macedonia’s entry into NATO – a 25 year U.S. policy goal; supporting negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians; coordinating U.S. government responses to crisis events worldwide; coaching new Iraqi journalists on the role of an independent press; assisting sick and injured U.S. mountaineers in Nepal; mentoring Egyptian university students establishing a Model U.S. Congress program; listening to exchange participants tell ME all the great things about the U.S.; and, most of all, meeting, working with, and learning from incredible colleagues and counterparts around the world.”
