From Ben Franklin to
Benghazi, the film America's Diplomats will take us
inside the Foreign Service and behind the scenes of U.S. foreign policy.
Discover the role our diplomats play in shaping American history. Uncover the
origins of our Foreign Service and the danger American diplomats face far from
home. Our speaker for the evening will be Todd Schwartz who retired from the
Foreign Service in September 2015 with the personal rank
of Counselor (roughly equivalent to Brigadier General). His overseas postings
have included Germany, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Qatar, the Philippines, Kuwait,
Canada, and Iraq. After the screening, he will share some of his first hand
experiences. Schwartz is currently executive director of the European American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cincinnati. This event is made possible by the Greater Cincinnati World
Affairs Council and the Verity Traditions Lecture Series of the Miami
University Regional Campuses.
