#DiscoverDiplomacy during this #WomensHistoryMonth.
The U.S. Diplomacy Center is dedicated to telling the story of American diplomacy. Each item in our collection of over 7,200 artifacts has a story to tell and sheds light on a unique moment of diplomatic history.
Our mission is to help domestic and international visitors understand what diplomacy is, who does it, and the critical role that diplomacy plays in securing America’s peace and prosperity. Visitors will experience the world of diplomatic engagement through state-of-the-art interactive exhibits, role playing exercises, and our unique artifacts. As part of the Bureau of Public Affairs, we also embrace efforts to showcase aspects of diplomacy that are as diverse as America — ensuring audiences that visit us in-person or online experience inclusive, innovative, and diverse stories and conversations.
To celebrate Women’s History Month, we are featuring some of our favorite artifacts to tell the story of memorable diplomatic moments in the careers of women at the Department of State.
These objects shed light on some memorable diplomatic moments for women at the Department of State.
