Fashion & Diplomacy

Nov. 12, 2013 | 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. | Professional Development Workshop
Ambassador Capricia Penavic Marshall, the most recent United States Chief of Protocol, will lead a free professional development workshop for educators. Ambassador Marshall will provide a unique perspective about fashion and how it is used in diplomatic activities.
As chief of protocol, Ambassador Marshall worked to advance the foreign policy goals of the Obama Administration by creating and fostering an environment for successful diplomacy. As the first person who welcomed presidents, prime ministers, ruling monarchs, and other foreign leaders to the United States, Ambassador Marshall was on the front lines of diplomatic engagement and utilized her deep knowledge of the nexus of culture and foreign policy to foster international goodwill and strengthen diplomatic relationships. This workshop is presented in conjunction with the Clinton Center’s “Oscar de la Renta: American Icon” exhibit. Following the workshop, Ambassador Marshall will lead a guided tour of this exhibit.
Educators will receive continuing education credit for completed professional development workshops. All workshops will last approximately two hours. Refreshments will be provided.
