"Impactful" is a word often associated with some careers more than others. We might immediately consider environmental, humanitarian, or philanthropic work to be impactful.

But what about diplomacy? Can working as a diplomat yield a fulfilling and, most importantly, an impactful career?

Join us for this special round-table panel discussion, which is open to the public, as we explore these questions with:

  • Ambassador, Mrs Priyanka Chauhan, Deputy Permanent Representative of India to UN & other IOs in Geneva

  • Ms Veronica Nzioki, Second Secretary (Humanitarian Affairs), Permanent Mission of the Republic of Kenya to the United Nations and Other International Organizations

  • Ms Laetitia Kirianoff Crimmins, Head Humanitarian Affairs, Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations Office and to the other international organizations in Geneva.
