WIPA Guest Speaker Event March 26th

February 13, 2010

WIPA is kicking off its Guest Speaker Series on March 26th.  Judith Baroody, Minister Counselor of Public Affairs at the US Embassy in Paris will speak on the history and role of women in the US Foreign Service.  Ms. Baroody exemplifies the objectives and goals of WIPA and we are honored that she has agreed to be our first guest speaker.

Guest speakers like, Ms Baroody are a cornerstone of WIPA’s activites.  WIPA seeks to foster the professional and personal development of all its members.  An integral part of this is being prepared for the international career path ahead.  Women working in an international setting face a series of challenges that they would not necessarily find at home.  Working abroad means that women’s professional and personal lives become closely intertwined, blurring boundaries often without the support networks one would have in a domestic setting.

These challenges can be taken head-on with the support of professional groups like WIPA or by an informed perspective.  By educating women on these challenges and rewards, WIPA members are more prepared for their international based career.  Additionally, WIPA members are able to find support through the relationships established at the MPA or through the WIPA network.
