About the Event

For nearly three-quarters of a century, the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia has provided its members, supporters, and the Greater Philadelphia community with access to domestic and foreign policymakers, global leaders, and influential thinkers.

The Satell Family Foundation “Diplochat” series provides meeting attendees with the opportunity to have an in-depth conversation with diplomats from around the world. Audience members will have the ability to ask questions and engage with those appointed by their governments to represent their country, skillfully negotiate, and use soft power to maintain political, economic, and social relations on the global stage.

The Council is hosting a discussion about U.S.-Israel relations, featuring remarks from Ambassador Asaf Zamir, Consul General of Israel in New York. Ambassador Zamir has also served as the Tourism Minister of Israel and as Deputy Mayor of Tel Aviv.  Time for Q&A will provide the audience with the opportunity to dive deeper into the topics of their choosing.

The conversation will be facilitated by Lauren Swartz, President & CEO of the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia.
