andres-roemer-2-Sold out! Conversation with UNESCO Ambassador

Courage to stand up for your beliefs

Please join the Harvard Club of San Francisco and the Kennedy School Alumni Network for a conversation with Dr. Andres Roemer, MPA '91, the former Ambassador of Mexico to the UNESCO, who stood up for his beliefs — costing him his job — but ultimately succeeding in changing the position of his country.

At a UNESCO Session in Paris, Dr. Roemer refused to cast a vote in favor of a resolution on Jerusalem that denied the Jewish people’s historic connection to the Temple Mount and the ancient city.

Come and hear Dr. Roemer's story in his own words - A Lesson In Leadership And Courage. 

Dr. Roemer is the grandson of a Viennese conductor who escaped from the Nazis. He previously served as the Consul General of Mexico in San Francisco.

The SF Chronicle called him a "rare public figure who deserves to be called a Renaissance man."

Dr. Roemer holds a Ph.D. in Public Policy from the University of California at Berkeley and an MPA from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government where he earned the "Don K. Price" Award for Academic Distinction and Commitment within the Public Sector. While at Harvard, he served as an Assistant Professor and taught several courses.

Dr. Roemer is the author of 16 books and 2 plays. He hosts a talk show on a major television network in Mexico and is the founder of the City of Ideas, a TED-type festival that brings together “the best minds from around the world”.
