Beginning her career as an attorney in the public sector, Fay Hartog-Levin may have never imagined that she would one day serve as the United States Ambassador to the Netherlands!  John Adams was the first U.S. Ambassador to the Netherlands offering great footsteps for those to follow. Ambassador Levin seized the opportunity and unwrapped her talent as a successful connector combined, with her deep love of culture, as she set forth on her journey as Ambassador working with both individuals and entities on an international basis.


Through her intellectual curiosity, and her desire for new challenges and professional growth, Ambassador Levin has intentionally, and successfully, transformed herself multiple times, and with work that has achieved both local and global impact.


Please join PWCC and Ambassador Levin as we learn from her story that through leveraging one’s existing skills, meaningful reinvention is within your reach.


Fay’s bio:


Ambassador Fay Hartog Levin was the 65th Ambassador of the United States of America to the Kingdom of the Netherlands from 2009-2011. In that capacity, she was chief of

mission of an embassy which included 15 federal agencies and over 250 employees. Her responsibilities included policy support, business advocacy, and public outreach. Her areas of focus and impact included a “Green Agenda,” engagement with diverse audiences (leaders in government, business, education, culture and religion), and public diplomacy through cultural exchanges.


Prior to her appointment, Ambassador Levin was a senior consultant at Res Publica Group where she worked with nonprofits to develop strategic partnerships, to leverage their visibility, and to maximize their support among traditional and non-traditional audiences and funders.  Other key positions Ambassador Levin has held include serving as the Vice President for External Affairs for Chicago's Field Museum, and was Of Counsel with the law firm of Seyfarth, Shaw, Fairweather&Geraldson where she specialized in school law.  Ambassador Levin began her career as a legal advisor to the Illinois State Board of Education.


Throughout her career, Ambassador Levin has been an active member of Chicago’s civic community. She currently is a Distinguished Fellow at The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and also serves on their Board of Directors. She is a member of the Board of the National Archives Foundation, the Board of the Roosevelt Institute, and the Board of WTTW/WFMT where she serves as Vice Chair. She was elected to the Board of the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Maryland's largest Foundation, and begins her term in 2016.


Previously, she was a member of the Illinois Arts Alliance Board from 1997 to 2009 and served as its Chairman from 2006 to 2008. She also served on the board of trustees of the Merit School of Music, DePaul University, and Columbia College Chicago.
