In October 2021, Secretary Blinken laid out an ambitious agenda to modernize American diplomacy, ensuring the Department is equipped with the tools, resources, skills, and expertise to take on our most pressing strategic challenges and to succeed in critical mission areas.
On October 23, the Secretary will return to a newly modernized FSI for a special edition of the Secretary’s Open Forum to share an overview of the Modernization Agenda’s accomplishments thus far and framing its focus for the coming year.
Please send advance questions by Thursday, October 19 to OpenForum@state.gov.
