CEO of North Texas Council
Dilshad has worked with me as a volunteer for the North Texas Council for International visitors under the State Department as both a professional resource, speaking authoritatively and eloquently on the many issues and challenges faced by new American women, and as a programmer for the organization, putting together professional visitor programs for visitors on subjects as diverse as Domestic Abuse and Violence, Women as Institutional Change Agents, and Trafficking in Persons. Dilshad’s knowledge of these areas, and her contacts throughout the North Texas community, have resulted in the opportunity for current and emerging foreign leaders sent to the U.S. under the auspices of the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program to meet with local experts in these fields, building new professional relationships and helping to foster international understanding.
North Texas is always one of several stops on these short term professional visits. These programs normally take several weeks to put together, assembling local experts to meet with our visitors and attending to the many logistical challenges involved. Dayani has helped us put together some exceptional programs, including one that had to be organized in the space of two days for a visitor group redirected from New York City following Hurricane Sandy. We could not have made this happen without her subject-matter expertise, her diplomatic and organizational skills, and her very substantial efforts.
