Washington, D.C.—The International Republican Institute (IRI) congratulates Governor Nikki Haley on her confirmation as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.
In July, Governor Haley accepted IRI’s Women’s Democracy Network (WDN) “10 for 10” award in recognition of her efforts to increase women’s political and civic leadership. In accepting the award, Governor Haley said, “Women are stepping up as leaders and public servants for the first time in many countries thanks to the Women’s Democracy Network, and that’s something we can all be proud of.”
“Governor Haley has been a staunch advocate of the principles at the heart of our mission, advocating freedom and democracy for all peoples,” said IRI President Ambassador Mark Green. “We have every confidence that she will further these values as our country’s representative to the United Nations, and we wish her every success in her new role.”
