Conroy’s talk will provide an informative overview of Foreign Service Officer (FSO) career pathways. Drawing from her rich experience, she’ll introduce a wide range of FSO activities, provide practical guidance on how to pursue such careers, and explain why UW students should consider doing so.

She served in leadership roles in Afghanistan, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan and Washington D.C. Conroy is now based in Spokane, her hometown, thinking globally and acting locally to further promote our democratic experiment.
