During my time in Kyiv, which is regrettably drawing to a close in July after an extended four-year posting, I have been delighted to have worked with a number of outstanding woman ambassadors from around the world based in Ukraine.

All are, in my view, excellent role models either for aspiring diplomats or anyone else. The past four years have also seen the number of EU member states represented by women in Kyiv increase from zero to four.
