The Foreign Service Behind the Curtain at CLE Lecture Hall
Vignettes from 39 Years of Diplomacy: The Foreign Service Behind the Curtain
(Sponsored By Milton and Marjorie Ruben)
In his 35-year career in the foreign service, Gene Cretz has served in some of the most challenging countries in the world: India, China, Egypt, Syria, Israel and Libya. Mr. Cretz will discuss how and why diplomats remain critical in a world increasingly dominated by direct leadership interactions and non-traditional ways of doing business, including cyber intrusions and zoom meetings. Of greater interest to the audience may be vignettes relating to this body of experience.
Come peer behind the curtain with perspectives on personnel in the State Department and working with Congress overseas.
