Diversity in Diplomacy: A Speaker Series

In moderated online conversations with Canadian and foreign ambassadors, high commissioners, and consuls general, this series will explore diplomatic service through the lens of intersectionality, encourage students from diverse backgrounds to consider diplomatic careers, and lead national and international conversations on the role of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in improving foreign policy outcomes. This series is jointly organized by the University of Alberta’s Intersections of Gender Signature Area, the Peter Lougheed Leadership College, and University of Alberta International.
