PWN Vienna-May General Meeting

14 May 2018 18:30 - 21:30 Diplomatic Academy of Vienna

WOMEN IN INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMACY – A SEAT AT THE TABLE? 

“Women are particularly good at diplomacy. It does require the human touch ... women are much better at having peripheral vision and multitasking and having the capability of telling it like it is. Many of the best diplomats are women, although there are men who can do it."  Madeleine Albright, the first woman U.S. Secretary of State

According to former Ambassador Julia Chang Block, the United States Ambassador to Nepal from 1989-1993, "until the mid-20thcentury, the most extensive contribution made by women to diplomacy was as the wives of diplomatic and consular officers. In this capacity, they supported their husbands by running diplomatic households, presiding as hostesses, making their own range of contacts to complement the official work of the Embassy and in many instances, distinguishing themselves by local, voluntary, and community work.”

With the world in constant conflict and no end in sight to the seemingly endless political and trade tensions, diplomacy is more important than ever. But is there such a thing as a women’s perspective in diplomacy? Come join us while we explore this theme and many other topics!
