On June 20th, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Secretary of State James A. Baker, III will participate in the second installment of “Conversations on Diplomacy, Moderated by Charlie Rose.”

The Conversation will provide an opportunity for the Secretaries to discuss the issues of the day and reflect on their experiences as America’s top diplomat. Emmy award-winning journalist Charlie Rose is the host of “Charlie Rose,” the nightly PBS program that engages the world's best thinkers, writers, politicians, business leaders, scientists and other newsmakers. “Charlie Rose” also airs on Bloomberg TV globally.

The event is part of the establishment of the United States Diplomacy Center. For more information on the Diplomacy Center, please click here.

The U.S. Diplomacy Center at the Department of State’s headquarters will be dedicated to bringing the story of American diplomacy to life. This space will invite audiences to explore the impact of diplomacy using state-of-the-art technology, interactive exhibits, compelling artifacts, hands-on education programs, diplomatic simulations, and on-hand foreign affairs experts. Education will be at the core of the Center’s work, drawing on the experiences of our diplomats as case studies and as the basis for interactive simulations.

The event will be open to a limited number of invited press.
