Student Roundtable Discussion with David H. Rank, Senior Foreign Service Officer (retired) — The Role of Career Diplomats in a Time of Policy Change

Past Event

November 9, 2017

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a student-only roundtable with David Rank, former Charge d’Affaires at the US Embassy in Beijing. Rank retired from the U.S. Foreign Service in June 2017 after a 27-year career, following the administration’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. He will offer frank guidance and advice to students interested in a career in government service, including his reflections on the obligations, opportunities, and challenges faced by career diplomats when a new U.S. Administration comes into office intent on reversing previous policy on high-profile issues like the response to climate change. This event is only open to students. Since space is limited, RSVPs will be accepted on a first-come basis until capacity is reached. Please only RSVP if you can commit to attending. Lunch will be provided. David Rank will also serve as headliner for a separate public event organized by CGEP on US-China energy and climate issues the morning of November 9. A separate registration will be required.
