Ambassador Katherine Tai: U.S. Trade Representative
Tue. September 26 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Can trade be a force for good? That’s what Ambassador Katherine Tai, current United States Trade Representative, is pursuing through worker-centered trade policy by prioritizing workers and their livelihoods, not just low costs and maximum efficiencies, and bringing underrepresented and underserved communities to the table.
A member of President Biden’s cabinet, Tai is the principal trade advisor, negotiator, and spokesperson on U.S. trade policy. She is also the first Asian American to hold this position.
Join the Diplomacy Initiative for the Diplomatic Discussion “A New Approach: Ambassador Katherine Tai and the Biden-Harris Administration’s Worker-Centered Trade Policy” to learn more about the work of the Office of the United States Trade Representative, international diplomacy, and Tai’s personal career path. Barbara Stephenson, vice provost for global affairs and former U.S. ambassador, will engage in a fireside chat with Tai, and the event will end with a Q&A session.
Pizza will be served!
