We are doing something a little different on the podcast today – we are joined by our first-ever male guest!  Host Kathleen McInnis sat down with Ambassador Donald Steinberg, the former U.S. Ambassador to Angola, among countless other roles. Ambassador Steinberg discussed his role in the 1994 Angola Peace Accords and how the decision to exclude women ultimately led to the failure of the peace process.  

Additionally, Ambassador Steinberg discussed Mobilizing Men as Partners for Women, Peace, and Security (MAWS), which argues that men must be part of the solution when it comes to implementing the Women, Peace, and Security agenda.
