Please join the WFU Global Deacs on Thursday, September 30, from 6:00 to 7:15 p.m. EDT for a virtual conversation on US foreign policy towards Latin America with Katherine Duffy Dueholm (’89), Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Mexico and Central America at the US Department of State, and Hillary Quam (’03), Special Advisor for the Western Hemisphere in the Office of the Vice President.

These two leaders in foreign policy will discuss the root causes of migration from Central America and the US government’s recently released strategy to support the region—topics that have received a great deal of press attention this year. They will also share experiences from their own unique career paths, which brought them from their Wake Forest undergraduate days to roles as foreign and civil servants at the Department of State. Kezia McKeague (’05), Director for Latin America at McLarty Associates, and María Antonia Montes (’11), Program Officer at the United States Institute of Peace, will moderate the conversation.

This Zoom Webinar is open to current students, alumni, and families of Wake Forest University and is off-the-record. Please register in advance. Registration is required and will close at 3 p.m. the day of the event.
