05 DECEMBER 2018 / Ambassador Wendy Sherman to speak at SNF Agora Institute

On Tuesday, December 4th, Ambassador Wendy Sherman spoke at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University.

Ambassador Sherman discussed her experiences as a woman in diplomacy, her role as Iran nuclear deal lead negotiator, and her new book, Not for the Faint of Heart: Lessons in Courage, Power, and Resistance. Barbara Mikulsky, former senator from Maryland, provided introductory remarks.

Launched in 2017 with a $150 million dollar commitment from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the SNF Agora Institute draws inspiration from the Agora of ancient Athens to revitalize the open and inclusive discourse on which democracy is founded. At an Agora Institute event in October, New York University sociologist Eric Klinenberg gave a talk on the far-reaching, life-and-death impacts of social infrastructure, as explored in his recent book, Palaces for the People.
