Lecture with U.S. Ambassador (ret.) Harriet Lee Elam-Thomas
Director, Diplomacy Program, University of Central Florida
U.S. Ambassador Harriet Lee Elam-Thomas will share personal and professional
reflections drawn from a lifetime of experience as a diplomat, a public
diplomacy expert, and a communicator.
Ambassador Elam-Thomas comes to Syracuse as part of her conversation
series entitled “Civility Strategies: Healing Approaches That Unite People and
Strengthen Democracy.” Her series
focuses on uniting across lines of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation
and political affiliation.
Elam-Thomas’ remarkable life journey is documented in the recently published
memoir, Diversifying Diplomacy: My
Journey From Roxbury to Dakar. She
offers an insider’s look at her service to the nation, including perspectives
on overcoming anti-American sentiment abroad and forging productive, mutually
beneficial diplomatic relationships.
Copies of Diversifying Diplomacy
will be available for purchase and signing by the author at the event.
The event is co-sponsored by the public relations/international relations graduate program, a joint program offered by the Newhouse School and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs; the public relations department (Newhouse); and the international relations program (Maxwell).
