Kellyanne Conway on how the White House is Working to Combat the Spread of COVID-19

There has been a combined effort crossing borders in both the public and private sectors to combat COVID-19On April 7, 2020, Meridian hosted Kellyanne Conway, Assistant to the President and Senior Counselor, for a virtual Insights@Meridian briefing to elaborate on the measures that the Trump Administration is taking to counter the viral pandemic and the economic impacts of the coronavirus in the United States.   

More than 130 members of the foreign diplomatic corps and private sector heard from the Senior Counselor of the President about the ongoing multi-sectoral cooperation and coordination efforts taking place at the White House in leading the charge to take action against this virus with state and local governments across the country.  Attendees were able to engage in Q&A with Conway throughout the discussion. 

Before becoming the Senior Counselor and Assistant of the President, Conway worked as a professional pollsterAs Donald Trump’s campaign manager for his 2016 presidential campaign, Conway became the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign with Trump's election as the 45th U.S. President and was hired as a top White House counselor.  

Insights@Meridian is designed to provide ambassadors and other senior diplomats with an intimate opportunity to hear directly from Administration leaders, members of Congress, policymakers and business visionaries on vital policy issues of the day. 

In this time of crisis, Meridian has transitioned to virtual convening programs, remaining committed to serving as a platform for government, business and diplomatic leaders to gain insight, exchange ideas and collaborate on the challenges around COVID-19 and other global issues. Discussions like this are crucial at this time, as better understanding of how these responses are coordinated within and among governments and nations will prove extremely useful.
