Ambassadors meet, talk careers with UW students

Two ambassadors met with approximately two dozen UW-Madison students on Wednesday, October 9, to talk about their experiences and to discuss careers in global health and international relations.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Botswana, John Lange, and former French Ambassador to Kuwait and Laos, Jean-Rene Gehan, are both UW-Madison alumni and members of the UW-Madison Division of International Studies’ External Advisory Board.

Ambassabor Lange recently left the Gates Foundation to join the United Nations Foundation. Ambassador Gehan is currently transitioning from his post as the French Ambassador to Laos into his new post, ambassador in charge of cooperation and education development in the Arab world and the Mediterranean region.
