Ambassador Elayne Whyte Gomez is a member of the special team on strategic foresight for Costa Rican foreign policy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Costa Rica.  She previously served as the former Ambassador from Costa Rica to the United Nations in Geneva.  In 2017, Ambassador Whyte presided over the proceedings of the United Nations Conference that negotiated and adopted the landmark Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Facing extraordinary time pressure, and, at times, contentious debate, Ambassador Whyte facilitated the adoption of this landmark agreement by a vote of 122 nations in favor, one against, and one abstention.  Among her many accomplishments, Ambassador Whyte is also the first woman and the youngest person ever to serve as vice minister of Foreign Affairs in Costa Rica.
