The United States Government's Assistant Secretary of State responsible for Management and Resources Brian P. McKeon will travel to Boston Harvard Business School, Mass, on March 10 to speak at the graduation ceremony for the second cohort of the seminar on Secretary's Leadership graduation ceremony, which is a Harvard Business School executive education program developed for the United States Department of State. Graduation will take place on March 11, 2022.

Twenty-five mid-level civil servants and twenty-five mid-level Foreign Ministry employees will complete the program in March. In 2019, philanthropist and Harvard alumnus Howard Cox approached the Department to propose a relationship with Harvard Business School (HBS) aimed at improving workforce leadership education. The seminar is the result of his commitment and the continued collaboration between HBS and the Department.

In Portsmouth, New Hampshire, accompanied by Assistant Secretary for Consular Affairs Rena Bitter, Assistant Secretary McKeon will tour the National Visa Center and the National Passport Center, which provide essential consular services to United States citizens and their family members in plus other immigrant visa applicants from around the world.
