Join the WFPG on April 26th for our keystone annual reception to commemorate and celebrate the accomplishments of women ambassadors and deputy chiefs of mission – our twelfth Celebration of Women Diplomats – and first in Washington since the pandemic!

We are thrilled to partner with the Organization of American States to host this premiere event at their storied and historic venue, providing the perfect setting to celebrate our honorees’ contributions to advancing women’s leadership in foreign affairs.

Throughout the evening, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from several accomplished women ambassadors and DCMs, as we highlight their respective achievements and the work being done to uplift women’s voices. This event will also serve as a wonderful opportunity to network and engage with like-minded, inspiring women in the field.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exclusive opportunity – space is limited, reserve your ticket today!
