GLOBAL ENVOY AWARD

2022 Award Presentation

The Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations is proud to announce the 2022 Global Envoy Award to be presented at the Annual Holiday Party. This prestigious honor recognizes an individual member of the organization who is pursuing PCFR's mission in an extraordinary way.

These honorees embody the spirit of the Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations. They are nominated and selected from the distinguished membership of the organization by the Directors and Executive Committee. Each will have demonstrated the ability to lead out in creating meaningful connections across the globe. These honored members are leaders, thinkers and diplomats–but above all, they are intrepid explorers, forging new paths and bridges between cultures, countries, and communities.

We look forward to honoring our second recipient of the award, Speaker Rusty Bowers, at the second annual PCFR Holiday Party at the Snell & Wilmer offices on December 7th.

From his position of leadership, Speaker Bowers has been instrumental in elevating Arizona’s global prominence. In countless meetings with foreign diplomats and business leaders across the globe, Speaker Bowers has represented the best that Arizona has to offer to the world. Through his tireless leadership, he has helped strengthen and expand Arizona’s international economic ties and create greater cultural exchange. In all these efforts, Speaker Bowers has embodied the spirit of the PCFR Global Envoy Award.

2021 Honoree, Secretary Barbara Barrett

Secretary Barbara Barrett embodies the PCFR Global Envoy Award spirit. Here’s how Secretary Barrett reflected on her experience as a PCFR member in a student fellow interview while serving as Secretary of the Air Force:

“I believe that PCFR is one of those great community institutions that makes us stronger. There was a time when Phoenix wasn’t that international...but PCFR was always the place where leaders of the community from diverse backgrounds, from government and business and from academia, all people with an international interest could come together and meet in a critical setting where we talk about policy issues; we build enduring relationships. That was an enrichment to me. I don't think I would be in this job if it weren’t for the global opportunities I got because of the Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations and the people I got to meet through the PCFR.


I think it’s an enrichment to our community and like so much in life, I think PCFR is what you make of it. The opportunity is there to make new friends, build new relationships and to learn about a lot more of our community because of PCFR. When we have speakers come to Phoenix to speak to the committee, we have the opportunity to hear from great leaders and learn what they’re working on and what their expertise is. But I look at it another way too. It’s an opportunity for us to show off our community, we bring people in and we get to show them not just the great place we have to live, but we also show them some of the leaders in our community. We show them the academic leaders, the business leaders and some of the academic leaders as well. So we are hearing from and learning from our PCFR speakers and visitors. We are also showing off some of the best of Phoenix because that’s who attends PCFR gatherings.”
