Practicing Law in Saudi Arabia @ Little America Hotel, Ballroom C
Sep 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Practicing Law in Saudi Arabia @ Little America Hotel, Ballroom C |  |  |

Join the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy for the Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series. We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Shihana Alazzaz who will share her experience of being one of the first women to practice law in Saudi Arabia and her passion for mentoring other young women in her field. Born and raised in Riyadh, she left at the age of seventeen to study law in the United Kingdom. In 2012, Saudi regulations regarding the right of women to practice law changed, prompting Ms. Alazzaz to return to Saudi Arabia and obtain her law license. She was offered a position opening the new Riyadh office of Vinson and Elkins (V & E) LLP. As the only woman working at the office, she was inspired to start an internship program to recruit talented young female law students. Since then, twelve young women entering their final year of law school have completed internships at V&E, giving these women valuable training before entering the workforce. Ms. Alazzaz was also integral to the creation and management of Tomouh, an organization dedicated to fostering the careers of ambitious young people in the Gulf Region.

Additionally, you are invited to join UCCD for a public meet and greet reception with Ms. Shihana Alazzaz at 6:00 pm before the lecture begins at 7:00 pm.

This lecture is FREE and open to the public. Registration required:http://utahdiplomacy.org/programs/world-affairs-lecture-series

Disease: A Direct Threat To National Security @ Westminster College Gore School of Business

Disease: A Direct Threat To National Security @ Westminster College Gore School of Business |  |  |

Join the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy for the Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series. We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Andrew Price-Smith who will explore the idea that epidemic disease represents a direct threat to the power of a state, eroding prosperity, and destabilizing both its internal politics and its relationships with other countries. The danger of an infectious pathogen to national security depends on lethality, transmissibility, fear, and economic damage, and warfare and ecological change contribute to the spread of disease and act as “disease amplifiers.”

Additionally, you are invited to join UCCD for a public meet and greet reception with Dr. Andrew Price-Smith at 6:00 pm before the lecture begins at 7:00 pm.

This lecture is FREE and open to the public. Registration required: https://disease.eventbrite.com

Roll Over Hemingway: Global Travelers Can Save Foreign Correspondency @ Westminster College Jewett Center for the Performing Arts |  |  |

Join the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy for the Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series. We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Matthew LaPlante who will examine the notion that after a decade of severe cuts in international news reporting by major news organizations, the time is right for global travelers to take the helm of foreign correspondency, as he has done so himself. When Mr. LaPlante left his job as a full-time newspaper journalist, he worried his most important work was behind him. However, he will discuss that from an exposé on ritual tribal infanticide in Ethiopia, to a feature exploring the legacy of genocide in Cambodia, to a series of reports on gang violence in El Salvador, the past few years have been his most successful as a reporter, even though he spends far less of his time doing journalism.
Additionally, you are invited to join UCCD for a public meet and greet reception with Mr. Matthew LaPlante at 6:00 pm before the lecture begins at 7:00 pm.

This lecture is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required: https://global-travelers.eventbrite.com
