The U.S. and the world are at an inflection point, where resilient leadership and strategic reimagining of alliances, competition, and power are needed to rebuild at home and abroad. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, with her steady voice of reason and analysis, consistently warning of the dangers of fascism and championing the ideals of democracy, is a source of inspiration to women and girls around the world.

Drawing on her decades of experience, Secretary Albright will discuss the leadership qualities needed to face new diplomatic challenges of the 21st century and share her reflections for aspiring public leaders seeking to chart new leadership paths, public service, and cooperation in the years ahead. In celebration of International Women's Day, this conversation is moderated by Menat Bahnasy AB 2022, Institute of Politics Student President, and Aoibheann Thinnes MPP 2021, Co-chair of Women in Defense, Diplomacy, and Development (W3D).
