In the Lead: German Ambassador Emily Haber

German Reunification Day (or German Unity Day) is a significant holiday to the German people. After World War II, Germany was divided into East and West Germany for almost half a century. On October 3, 1990, both sides were officially reunified into one country.

To help commemorate this important day, we spoke with H.E. Emily Haber, the Ambassador of Germany to the United States and a new member of IWF Washington, D.C. Ambassador Haber is a career foreign service officer who has worked on security and migration at the height of the refugee crisis in Europe. In this capacity, she worked closely with the United States on issues from the fight against terrorism to global cyberattacks and cybersecurity.

For this edition of In the Lead, Ambassador Haber told us about becoming a new member of the IWF community, what German Reunification Day means to Germans and what she thinks women bring to the field of diplomacy.
