African Diplomatic Orientation and Engagement Program
On April 5th and 6th, the Africa-America Institute hosted its inaugural African Diplomatic Orientation & Engagement program in Queenstown, Maryland. An hour outside of D.C., Ambassadors, seasoned and new, and thought leaders across various sectors—including private, government and NGOs—convened for an event dedicated to supporting the success of the African Diplomatic Corps serving in Washington DC.
Over 60 guests attended the retreat, with representation from 20 African Countries. Adhering to Chatham House Rules, Ambassadors were able to engage in lively and informative discussions on a broad range of topics with experts on panels on a broad range of topics ranging from navigating the Executive and Legislative Branches to interacting with Western media.April 2019 African Diplomatic Orientation and Engagement Program
