Last year’s 10th anniversary celebration of Folk Art Market | Santa Fe saw more than its share of attendant dignitaries. Among them was Ambassador Melanne Verveer, who was appointed by President Obama in 2009 as the first ever U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues at the Department of State.

Working with former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Verveer traveled to nearly 60 countries to coordinate foreign policy issues and activities related to the political, economic and social advancement of women. Verveer, who is currently the director of Georgetown University’s Institute for Women, Peace and Security, was also instrumental in launching the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise, an initiative founded through the U.S. Department of State and The Aspen Institute.
