CPD Summer Institute Alumna Receives 2018 PDAA Award

CPD Summer Institute alumna Adrienne Bory was honored with the 2018 Public Diplomacy Achievement Award (PDAA) for her outstanding achievements at the U.S. Embassy in Panama. The PDAA commended Bory’s use of social media platforms to share accurate information of U.S engagement within Panama. According to them, her work was instrumental in turning public opinion and countering false information regarding a U.S plan to use Panama as a staging ground to invade Venezuela. 

Bory, an Information Officer in Panama, is an alumna of the 2018 CPD Summer Institute for Public Diplomacy which has trained close to 300 mid-career practitioners. 

PDAA, an association of Public Diplomacy Professionals, has presented annual awards for outstanding achievements in public diplomacy since 1993.
