As part of the International Platform of the UTRO Youth Forum, a large annual forum that gathers 1500 students from across the Urals region, Consulate Staff lead a Young Diplomats Day workshop. During the workshop, 25 motivated university students spoke with American diplomats about life in the foreign service, the various sections of the U.S. Consulate and diplomacy. In addition, the Public Affairs Officer moderated a panel about successful youth organizations, including speakers from the Stanford U.S.-Russia Forum, an independent student organization that connects Russian and American students.
