Difficult Conversations as a Catalyst for Change: Madeleine Albright

Former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, pathbreaking diplomat and bestselling author, will be the keynote speaker at the University of Rochester.

Albright’s talk will focus on American foreign policy in 2019. Her visit is part of the “Difficult Conversations as a Catalyst for Change” lecture series presented by Donald Hall, the University’s Robert L. and Mary L. Sproull Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Sciences & Engineering.

Albright is a professor in the practice of diplomacy at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service and is chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategy firm. She is also chair of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory firm focused on emerging markets. She was the 64th U.S. secretary of state. In 2012, Albright received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.

Albright was named the first female secretary of state in 1997, making her at that time the highest ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government.

Her most recent book, Fascism: A Warning, is a New York Times number one bestseller and offers food for thought in today’s highly charged political climate.
