On Thursday 10 November 2016, H.E. Rhoda M. Jackson, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of The Bahamas in Geneva, met with two Geneva-based primary school students who interviewed her on aspects of her work and that of the Permanent Mission, as part of their careers day activities.  The Ambassador spoke to the students about the role of an Ambassador, the ways in which States interact in the multilateral arena and how the Mission performs its mandate on a day-to-day basis, on behalf of the Government.   The Ambassador responded to questions posed by the students who were also treated to a video presentation of a recent statement delivered by Ambassador Jackson at the Human Rights Council as well as a tour of the Mission and interaction with diplomatic staff on their specific portfolios.  The careers day exercise is aimed at exposing primary level students to diverse professions so as to inform their future career choices.  Emphasis is also placed on encouraging students to explore professions which have been traditionally dominated by persons of the gender opposite to their own, to motivate them to consider aspiring to such roles.
