When the American Bar Association International Law Section awarded Ambassador (Ret.) Bushnell the Francis Shattuck Security and Peace Award in 2020, it recognized her contributions to the cause of international security and peace during her foreign service career.
As Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Department of State’s Africa bureau in the mid 1990s, Pru was responsible for coordinating inter-agencies policies to conflicts in Liberia, Burundi and Rwanda. During the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, her efforts to bring attention to the slaughter were featured in the 2005 film, Sometimes in April, in which she is portrayed by actress Debra Winger.
Later, as U.S. ambassador to Kenya, Pru led the community’s response to the 1998 Al Qaeda bombing of the U.S. embassy in Nairobi. As our ambassador to the Republic of Guatemala (1999-2002), she served as a forceful advocate for labor and human rights, using innovative ways to help implement the 1995 Peace Accords that brought an end to years of internal conflict.
Pru’s final assignment as Dean of the Leadership and Management School at the Foreign Service Institute (2002-2005) enabled her to extend leadership lessons learned to State Department colleagues.
After retirement, she continued her focus on leadership and national security, founding the Levitt Leadership Institute at Hamilton College and publishing her book, Terrorism, Betrayal and Resilience: My Story of the 1998 U.S. Embassy Bombing. She continues to speak about the importance of transformational leadership and explores what leadership looks like in real life by posting articles from people she admires on a Marketplace of Leadership Stories on her website www.prudencebushnell.com.
