Asia Foundation Honors Senator Dianne Feinstein of California at 60th Anniversary Dinner in Washington DC
On May 19, The Asia Foundation honored Senator Dianne Feinstein of California with the first-ever Chairman’s Award for her commitment to U.S.-Asia Relations at a special Ambassadors Dinner in Washington, DC. Ambassadors from across the Asia-Pacific region and key foreign policy officials gathered to recognize the Foundation’s pioneering work over the last six decades.
Said Asia Foundation president David D. Arnold: “A legacy of the Foundation is nurturing strong leaders, and since 1954 we have invested in leadership in public office, academia, the private sector, and civil society; we know the catalytic role that leaders like Senator Feinstein can play in societies. Senator Feinstein is the very first recipient of The Asia Foundation’s Chairman’s Award for her longstanding commitment to U.S.-Asia Relations and strong support of the Foundation.”
The Washington Ambassadors Dinner is part of an 60th anniversary program announced earlier this year featuring special events, an interactive timeline of the Foundation’s remarkable history in Asia, and a global conversation on the critical issues facing Asia in the 21st century.
