Facing Diplomacy: Hispanic-American Diplomats

5:00 pm


​​In a special Diplomacy After Hours, NMAD hosted a discussion about the contributions of Hispanic-American diplomats to American diplomacy.

Ambassador Lino Gutiérrez shared memorable moments from his 29-year career in the Foreign Service, and Isabel Romero, President of the Hispanic Employee Council of Foreign Affairs Agencies (HECFAA), discussed her thoughts about the impact Hispanic-American diplomats make in serving our nation.

Finally, looking to the past, Dr. Alison Mann, NMAD’s Public Historian, and Museum Associate Sarah Chacon explored the life and work of Ambassador Mari-Luci Jaramillo, a presidential appointee who served as the first woman Hispanic-American Ambassador to Honduras (1977-1980).
