The Foreign Service Journal covers foreign affairs from an insider's perspective, providing thoughtful articles on international issues, the practice of diplomacy and the U.S. Foreign Service. Including the AFSA News section, the Journal is published monthly (July-August issues combined) by the American Foreign Service Association.
The May issue of The Foreign Service Journal, being mailed to members and available online, celebrates diversity within the Foreign Service. After an editor’s intro tracing AFSA’s role in making the Foreign Service more truly representative of American society, Ernest H. Wilson III lays out the case for “Diversity and Cultural Competence: Mission-Critical Elements of U.S. Foreign Policy.”
We follow that with contributions from Cynthia Saboe (Executive Women at State), Stacy D. Williams (the Thursday Luncheon Group), and Steven Giegerich (Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) describing the work of those organizations—all AFSA affinity groups--to end discrimination and promote diversity within the Foreign Service.
Morgan McClain-McKinney then discusses the importance of “Celebrating Our Past, Uplifting Our Future,” and Margot Carrington concludes our coverage by examining the question, “How Are FS Women at State Faring?”
