Monique Quesada is the Diplomat in Residence (DIR) based in Miami at Florida International University and Miami Dade College. She has been a career Foreign Service Officer for the U.S. Department of State since 1988, serving in many countries including France, England, Morocco and Afghanistan. During Quesada’s assignment in Herat, Afghanistan, her mission was to establish a permanent civilian presence in Western Afghanistan by opening a new U.S. Consulate in the area. Her personal goal was to focus on women’s rights issues. This lecture will highlight these experiences, while also addressing obstacles and outcomes along the way.

The series is $150 for new and returning members. Lifetime members and peer leaders can subscribe for $100.

The Distinguished Lecture Series is presented in partnership by the Indian River State College Foundation and the Ray and Peg Hirvonen Charitable Foundation. Speakers and offerings are subject to change based on speaker availability.
