Diplomacy, Geopolitics and Women's Rights,

The Women Ambassadors Conference is an annual conference organized by faculty and students of Howard University in conjunction with the Women Ambassadors Foundation, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

The goal of the Annual Women Ambassadors Conference is three-fold: to celebrate the work of women in diplomacy and related fields; to provide role models to students, particularly students from constituencies that are less represented in the diplomatic field; to inform students from various universities around the globe and the general public about major issues in international affairs.

The Annual Women Ambassadors Conference has become, over the years, a true institution in the Washington DC diplomatic landscape. In 2023, the 27th Annual Women Ambassadors Conference will take place on Thursday March 30, in person, and on Friday March 31, online.

Stay tuned on this website for the link to the 27th Annual Women Ambassadors Conference.

Join the Ambassadors, Faculty and Students in person on March 30 and online on March 31!
