Brandon Strassberg of the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor

This October during National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we are honoring Department employees for their countless contributions to diplomacy.

Brandon Strassberg of the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor: Having a workforce that represents the American public, both domestically and overseas, I think is a pivotal piece of promoting disability rights.

Under the leadership of the President and Secretary of State, the U.S. Department of State leads America’s foreign policy through diplomacy, advocacy, and assistance by advancing the interests of the American people, their safety and economic prosperity. On behalf of the American people we promote and demonstrate democratic values and advance a free, peaceful, and prosperous world.

The Secretary of State, appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate, is the President's chief foreign affairs adviser. The Secretary carries out the President's foreign policies through the State Department, which includes the Foreign Service, Civil Service and U.S. Agency for International Development.
