Madeleine K. Albright is a professor, author, diplomat and businesswoman who served as the 64th Secretary of State of the United States. In 1997, she was named the first female Secretary of State and became, at that time, the highest ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government. From 1993 to 1997, Dr. Albright served as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations and was a member of the President’s Cabinet. Author of the No. 1 New York Timesbestseller, Fascism: A Warning, Albright’s talk and moderated Q&A will draw on her experiences as a child in war-torn Europe and her distinguished career as a diplomat to address lessons we must understand and questions we must answer if we are to avoid repeating tragic errors of the past.
“[Albright’s] contribution to the cultivation of democracy as a stateswoman and private citizen is unparalleled.” The New York Times
