Fireside Chat with Kurt Donnelly, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Diplomacy


Join the Washington Foreign Society for a fireside chat with Mr. Kurt Donnelly, former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Diplomacy in the Department of State?s Bureau of Energy Resources.

At a time when domestic policies are increasingly shaped by global dynamics, the role of diplomats assumes a renewed centrality in advancing important government objectives. Mr. Donnelly ? who just retired from the foreign service after a distinguished career spanning 33 years and assignments across the world ? has most recently played a key role in advancing the Biden Administration?s international climate and energy policy goals. In this fireside chat, Mr. Donnelly will discuss his involvement in US-led energy diplomacy initiatives and his views on US foreign policy priorities in a shifting international order.

The conversation will be led by Michael Teodori, President of the Washington Foreign Law Society.
