Winner of the Women in Peace & Security Award 2021

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, was awarded the first-ever “Women for Peace and Security” award during the Plenary Sitting of the 67th Annual Session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (NATO PA), taking place in Lisbon, Portugal.

Speaker Pelosi was a member of the NATO PA for over a decade. During this time, and later as Speaker, she has led efforts to strengthen transatlantic security through US Congressional engagement with and support for NATO, Allied countries and the Assembly. Since her re election as Speaker in 2019, she has led large, bipartisan congressional delegations abroad, including to the 2019 and 2020 North Atlantic Council and NATO PA Joint Committee meetings in Brussels. She also facilitated NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg’s joint address to the US Congress in observance of the 70th anniversary of NATO, making him the first-ever leader of a multilateral organisation to do so and providing him with a platform to propound on the importance of the NATO Alliance and the unique transatlantic bond.
