At the United Nations 2045 Roundtable, moderated by Ramu Damodaran, Chief of the United Nations Academic Impact, on October 27, 2020, Ambassador Swanee Hunt brought a moving and emotional talk about Maestro Charles Ansbacher, her husband, bringing classical music to the public along her life as the US Ambassador to Austria. She also shared her experience as Founder of the Women and Public Policy Program, a research center concerned with domestic and foreign policy, which she directed for more than a decade at the Harvard Kennedy School. Her experience inspired leaders of the AIWS City bring classical music for people of the AIWS City. An expert on domestic policy and foreign affairs, Hunt also chairs the Washington-based Institute for Inclusive Security, conducting research, training, and advocacy to integrate women into peace processes. She will become a Culture Ambassador of the AIWS City.
