Our wonderful incoming Cohort IV of Global Citizen Scholars have cobbled together their first video challenge this summer, overcoming the challenges of access to technology, varying technical skills, and geographical distance. They were asked to talk about a female leader or inspirational figure that they admire. Here are a few of the individual clips. You can see the complete collation of submissions here. We're thrilled at the diversity of responses. It's a great start to a year in which we will discuss women change-makers from around the world.

On September 20, 2020, the on-campus Global Citizenship Scholars from Cohort IV, along with their Teaching Assistants, and Faculty, picnicked in the sun in the rooftop garden outside the Vukovich Communication Center. With masks on, the group made tie-and-dye masks for themselves and as gifts for friends. It was a much-needed respite from COVID isolation, to come together, share some laughter, play name games, and get to know each other.

AMBASSADOR EMERITUS

GINA ABERCROMBIE-WEATHERLY

“Too often, each of us has walked into the room and been the only woman at the table. Certainly, as a woman of color, I have that experience far too often. And what could we do to change that?” 

 

The first woman diplomat to lead a U.S. consulate in Saudi Arabia, and former U.S. ambassador to Malta, Gina Abercrombie-Weatherly has held a series of senior positions that have included advising the Commander of U.S. cyber forces on our foreign policy priorities, expanding our counterterrorism partnerships and programs as Deputy Coordinator for Counterterrorism, and coordinating the largest evacuation of American citizens from a war zone since World War ll. 

Ambassador Weatherly gave a Zoom talk to Allegheny students how to pursue change through a career in foreign diplomacy
