The first 2023-2024 Bunting Peace and Justice talk will be given by Pamela White. Her talk is entitled “Haiti – Too Rich to be Poor: 1804-2023.” It will take place on Oct. 2nd at 5:30 pm in McGuire Hall West. 

Pamela White is an American diplomat who currently teaches at the University of Maine. In 2010, White was named United States ambassador to the Gambia by President Barack Obama. In January 2012, White was appointed United States ambassador to Haiti, where she served in the aftermath of the catastrophic earthquake until 2015. Prior to her appointments as ambassador, White served in the Peace Corps in Cameroon. She also worked for the United States Agency for International in Burkina Faso, Senegal, Haiti, Egypt, and South Africa. In addition, she was the deputy director for East Africa. Pamela White has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Maine, a master’s degree from the School for International Training, and a degree in international development from the National Defense University. Given her wealth of training and experience, Pamela White has developed a keen assessment of current situations, obstacles to economic growth, and political (in)stabilities.

Several Loyola faculty members will join a discussion panel after the talk to discuss current and past issues with Mrs. White from a multi-disciplinary, global, peace and justice perspective.

The Bunting Peace and Justice Speaker Series is named after Mary Catherine Bunting, whose very generous donation to Loyola has supported the creation of the Peace and Justice minor on campus, as well as numerous faculty and student research grants, course development grants, and community projects. 

This event is free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by Peace and Justice, Global Studies, and Rendez-Vous Haiti.
