As our inaugural speaker, Dr. Anne-Marie Slaughter's talk will examine geopolitical risk and analysis.

Dr. Slaughter served as Director of Policy Planning for the U.S. Department of State from 2009-2011, and was the first woman to hold the position. She is a former Dean of Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and the former J. Sinclair Armstrong Professor of International, Foreign, and Comparative Law at Harvard Law School. Dr. Slaughter is the author or editor of eight books, including her most recent, "The Chessboard and the Web: Strategies of Connection in a Dangerous World." Her 2012 article in The Atlantic, "Why Women Still Can't Have It All," was the most-read article in the magazine's history and helped create a national conversation on gender equality.
