Former US Ambassador to Malta Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley shared her experiences as the first female leader of a US mission in Saudi Arabia, and addressed the topic of women in the US State Department and in diplomacy more broadly. As US Consul in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) at the time of the Al-Qaeda attack on the Consulate in 2004, and with proven expertise on the Middle East, she also commented on current US policy toward the region.
