U.S. consulate in Yekaterinburg welcomes students for Young Diplomats Day

Last month, the U.S. consulate in Yekaterinburg welcomed the newest group of young diplomats representing four universities in two cities for a forum on education and development.

During their visit to the consulate, the young diplomats were treated to a screening of "Girl Rising," a 2013 film that advocates higher education for young women.

Later, consulate representatives shared free online educational resources with the students and gave a brief training session on ways students can navigate their educational careers autonomously.

At the conclusion of the session, the students and members of the consulate had a roundtable discussion on emerging fields of study at the students' respective universities-- Izhevsk State University, Udmurt State University, Ural Mining University and Ural Agricultural Academy.
