Diversity, Diplomacy and Careers at the U.S. Department of State

Diversity, Diplomacy and Careers at the U.S. Department of State
ASU Council for Arabic & Islamic Studies Lecture Series presents:
Amirah Ismail, Foreign Service Officer at the U.S. Department of State on: 
The U.S. Department of State has the honor of representing the American people to the world. To do that well, we must recruit and retain a workforce that truly reflects America.  Diversity and inclusion make us stronger, smarter, more creative and more innovative.  And our diversity gives us a significant competitive advantage on the world stage.  This is something that I firmly believe, and that President Biden and Secretary Blinken have admirably championed.  As Secretary Blinken has remarked, "We're operating in a diverse world, and America's diversity is a source of strength that few countries can match."  Have you ever considered pursuing a career in diplomacy?  What do you know about the Foreign Service and the work U.S. diplomats do every day to protect American citizens and our national security, and to promote American values and interests around the world?  You are invited to join a conversation about diversity, diplomacy and careers at the U.S. Department of State with proud ASU alumna and Foreign Service Officer Amirah Ismail.
