Join DACOR and AAFSW for a co-hosted event with Afghanistan's Ambassador to the United States, Ambassador Roya Rahmani.
Roya Rahmani is Afghanistan’s first female ambassador to the United States of America. She is also non-resident Ambassador to Argentina, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Colombia. She previously served as Afghanistan’s first female ambassador to Indonesia and was the country’s first accredited ambassador to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). She was awarded the Best Human Rights Activist Award by the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission in 2010 and was named the People’s Ambassador in 2017 by the Indonesia Tatler. In 2019, she was featured on TIME Magazine’s “100 Next List” as a “fierce advocate of peace on Afghan terms.” She has a bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering from McGill University and a master’s degree in Public Administration from Columbia University. She is the mother of a young daughter, and often speaks passionately about the importance of bringing women and youth into the democratic process.
