Partners in Diplomacy
PODCASTS ARE A GREAT WAY TO EXPERIENCE ADST’S ORAL HISTORY COLLECTION
Partners in Diplomacy is “a podcast series exploring the service, sacrifice, and adventure of life as a Foreign Service family member”. This initiative, part of an Una Chapman Cox Foundation project on American Diplomacy and the Foreign Service, with the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training (ADST), will collect, produce, and publish oral histories of spouses and partners working in the U.S. foreign affairs community. This project is designed to raise awareness of the important contributions Foreign Service spouses have made to both U.S. diplomacy and to our country. Words of Wisdom from experienced diplomatic spouses.
Check out this week’s FEATURED EPISODE: Mette Beecroft is a pioneer and tireless advocate for improving the lives of Foreign Service families through her efforts to launch the Family Liaison Office (FLO) at the State Department in 1978 and her work as a CLO (Community Liaison Officer) at various embassies.
