2019 Events

On Wednesday evening, the Women's Diplomatic Series had the pleasure and honor of being hosted by H.E. Ambassador Jaeger and his lovely wife, Laurette, for a wonderfully candid and engaging conversation about the rich history and culture of Liechtenstein, co-moderated by WDS President Laura Elsey and WDS YP Chairwoman Jenna Russo, at the House of Sweden, followed by a stunning reception at the official Residence. We could not be more grateful for the warmth and hospitality of the Embassy staff and would like to make a special shout-out to Tamara Büchel-Brunhart for her support in orchestrating this event.

To celebrate 10 years of the Women's Diplomatic Series, we were grateful to be hosted at the Embassy of Ireland USA by His Excellency Ambassador Daniel Mulhall. Our special guest Mary Jordan, an award-winning journalist, will be facilitating an exhibition entitled, "Blazing the Trail" to highlight the experience and achievements of Irish and Irish-American women.
