TTUHSC Global Health Lecture Series — From Bosnia, to Baghdad, Washington, and Austin: A Look at a Career in Foreign Affairs

March 30, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The TTUHSC Office of Global Health (OGH) invites you to attend an ongoing lecture series on issues related to global health. The lectures will be offered monthly at 12:00 noon CT. Invited guest speakers will share their personal stories and experiences, research initiatives, and insights into constructive ways to build healthy communities and develop sustainable global health initiatives.

During this presentation, Robin Lerner will discuss her varied professional experiences in foreign policy, including leading on women’s issues, human rights, and public diplomacy at the U.S. Department of State and on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, her work helping trafficking victims and ethnic minorities in post-conflict Balkan countries, and ultimately what led her to serving as president and CEO of the Texas International Education Consortium (TIEC). Ms. Lerner has spent a lifetime immersing herself in cultures around the world toward bringing greater equality, equity, governance, and broad human rights. To succeed, she has cultivated knowledge and expertise in international relations, global women’s issues, international policy, program development, civic affairs, public service, and interprofessional collaboration.
