This is a coming together of highly accomplished professionals who happen to be women. These are individuals who represent their governments and nations to the rest of the world. Consequently, this offers scope for a rich discussion on navigating various cultural, political, economic forks and bends.

Our panel of truly exceptional women addresses the power and prestige that comes with working in the foreign service.  What are their hardest assignments?
