Understanding is a key word in international relationships. Ambassador Shirin Tahir-Kheli, an India-born Pakistani-American who is the daughter of a renowned theoretical physicist, has vast experience in pursuit of understanding.

In 2011 Newsweek magazine named her among "150 Women Who Shake The World," lauding her for helping to "build bridges between the U.S. and Pakistan."

Her World Affairs Council program topic is "Understanding Muslim Societies: Why It Is Critical." This Council program is presented with support from Carnegie Corporation of New York.

The ambassador's career includes serving as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's Senior Advisor for Women's Empowerment. She also was the secretary's senior advisor on United Nations Reform. Her career in White House administrations began in 1992 when she became a member of Ronald Reagan's Department of State policy planning staff. Currently, as a 2009 Carnegie Corporation Scholar, she is completing a project titled "Diplomacy Without Negotiation: George W. Bush and Democracy Promotion in the Muslim World."
