Ambassador Hunaina Sultan Al-Mughairy, Omani Ambassador to the United States, and Ambassador Frances Cook, former U.S. Ambassador to Oman, will speak in the auditorium of the International Cultural Center (601 Indiana Ave.). The program will have a question and answer format, with Ambassadors Al-Mughairy and Cook answering questions put to them by Ambassador Tibor Nagy, Vice Provost for Tech's Office of International Affairs.
Ambassador Al-Mughairy is the first woman envoy to represent an Arab country in Washington, and Ambassador Cook was the first woman to head a US diplomatic post in the Middle East (Alexandria 1983). The evening should provide many insights into topics such as women's roles in the Middle East and how Oman is important to the U.S. The panel discussion is free and open to the public.
