    Americans and others in today’s world are facing a myriad of serious problems. Some issues are so serious that comprehensive solutions seem beyond our individual reach. If we all focused on just three issues impacting life in the immediate and medium-term future, what would they likely be?  What role should international policy and shared
    problem-solving play in addressing major global issues?
    Which diplomatic options are available and
    what strategies promise the best outcomes?

    Our speaker, Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield, is Senior Counselor at ASG and leads the firm's Africa practice. She is
    also a Distinguished Resident Fellow in African Affairs at the
    Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University
    Walsh School of Foreign Service. She has had a long and distinguished 35-year Foreign Service career, including an ambassadorship in Liberia, postings to five other countries,
    and tenure in a UN Mission. From 2013-2017, Ambassador
    Thomas-Greenfield served as U.S. Assistant Secretary of
    State for African Affairs. Prior to that appointment, she
    served as Director General of the Foreign Service and
    Director of Human Resources, leading the team in charge
    of the State Department's 70,000 member personnel.
