Feminist foreign policies place women and girls at the center of diplomatic decisions, with the ultimate goal of advancing gender equality around the world. In 2014, Sweden became the first country in the world to declare a Feminist Foreign Policy. Mexico became the first country in Latin America to adopt a Feminist Foreign Policy in 2020. While fairly recent developments, these policies are gaining momentum and setting examples for similar pathways for governments around the world.

On July 20, Master of Public Diplomacy candidate, Carter Rice, will discuss how public diplomacy achieves these goals. Joining Carter are Ambassador Marcela Celorio, Consul General of Mexico in Los Angeles, and Ambassador Karin Olofsdotter, Ambassador of Sweden to the United States

Public diplomacy can be a key element in advancing gender equality around the world. As established policies are relatively new and more countries commit to adopting them, this event will bring together representatives of foreign ministries currently engaged in these policies to explore the role that public diplomacy can play in promoting Feminist Foreign Policies going forward. How have governments used Public Diplomacy to promote their Feminist Foreign Policies thus far? What are their priorities and best practices? What can governments who are interested in adopting these policies learn from their examples?
