100,000 Strong

Citing the strategic importance of the U.S.-China relationship President Obama announced in 2009 the 100,000 Strong Initiative, a national effort to increase dramatically the number of American students studying in China and prepare the next generation of American experts to manage the growing political, economic, and cultural ties between the United States and China. Kimberly McClure, Deputy Director of the 100,000 Strong Initiative and a Foreign Service Officer, U.S. Department of State, will visit Northern Kentucky next week to speak to our higher education and business communities.

Kimberly McClure is an eight-year Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Department of State. While traveling frequently to China in her current role, Kimberly has spent most of her career working on South Asia policy in India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Washington.

Following two-year assignments to Mumbai, India, and Kabul, Afghanistan, Kimberly worked as Special Assistant to Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan; completed an International Affairs Fellowship with the Council on Foreign Relations; and completed assignments in the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Human Resources and Operations Center. Kimberly holds a B.A. in international relations from Stanford University and a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

Thanks to an effort by the Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council (GCWAC), on Wednesday, January 25 at 2:00 PM, Kimberly McClure will be at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce to meet with local business leaders who have an interest to speak about the economic development and growth benefits of China.
