U.S. Foreign Service Officer, Clinton Canady IV

Clinton is a foreign service officer for the U.S. Department of State, an appointment he received after completing the prestigious Presidential Management Fellowship (PMF). Join this incredibly engaging session with Clinton to discover more about a vocation in international affairs; how the PMF helped catapult him into the foreign service; working and living abroad; participating in political campaigns; and get answers to your questions.

About Clinton:
Born and raised in Michigan, Clinton earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from U-M in 2003 and completed internships at all levels of government—Michigan’s state legislature, the U.S. State Department, and Canadian Parliament. After graduation, Clinton worked as a door-to-door salesman to earn enough to pay for his move to rural Mexico to teach English to underprivileged children in a post-graduate exchange.

Following the exchange, Clinton moved to Washington, D.C., to work for the famed and fierce Senator Debbie Stabenow (MI). After "graduating" from Capitol Hill, Clinton worked in grassroots advocacy and international development, then joined Hillary Clinton's first presidential campaign as a field operative in Iowa, Wisconsin, North Carolina and West Virginia. Post-campaign, Clinton matriculated at the University of South Carolina's Moore School of Business, earning an international MBA with concentrations in international business, global supply chain, operations management, process improvement, and Arabic.
