Location: Deutz Room, Institute of the Americas complex
The Institute of the Americas is honored to host an evening with Ambassador Lisa Kubiske, the United States Ambassador to Honduras. Join us for a conversation focusing on Amb. Kubiske’s experience in Honduras, security issues in Central America’s North Triangle, the fight against gangs and the implications of the drug trade on the region’s stability. This is a must attend event for those interested in international relations and diplomacy.
Ambassador Kubiske’s diplomatic career has taken her to posts in the Dominican Republica, China, Mexico, Brazil, and elsewhere. Much of her work has focused on promoting international trade – she was recently awarded a Superior Honor award for her participation in the public outreach campaign on behalf of the United States-Peru Free Trade Agreement. Her work has also centered on science and agriculture, and she was instrumental in efforts toward U.S.-Brazil biofuels cooperation.
Ambassador Kubiske received the State Department’s highest honor, a Valor Award. She holds a Bachelor's Degree from Brandeis University and a Masters of Science in Foreign Service degree from Georgetown University.
