Join us to hear Carmela Conroy, Jackson School alumna and career Foreign Service Officer, on examples of how to cultivate a leadership role in the Foreign Service, and how you can make a difference even as early career professionals.

Carmela Conroy is currently director of the U.S. Foreign Service Institute in Yokohama, Japan. She joined the U.S. Foreign Service in 1996, and has spent most of her career negotiating and promoting U.S. interests focused on international, national, local, and personal security policy issues.

Immediately prior to her current role, she served as director of an office in the Department of State's Bureau of Conflict & Stabilization Operations. Her overseas experience includes a term as political advisor to the Provincial Reconstruction Team in Bamyan, Afghanistan, and was the Regional Refugee Coordinator at Embassy Kabul. She has worked on political-military issues and during tours in Tokyo and Okinawa and her northernmost assignment was leading the political-economic section at Embassy Oslo.

Her career to date has also seen her serve as Consul General in Lahore, Pakistan, as well as deputy principal officer in Auckland, New Zealand. In Washington, D.C. she has worked on trade-related intellectual property and anti-trust issues.
