St. Anne's-Belfield School alumna Anne-Marie Slaughter '76 will be returning to Charlottesville to speak on "Global Hot Spots & Blind Spots: The Geopolitical Landscape" at the Darden Abbott Auditorium on Friday, Sept. 21. The event will begin at 6:00 p.m.
Slaughter is a renowned foreign policy expert, the Bert G. Kerstetter University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University, a contributing editor to the Financial Times, and the author and editor of eight books. She is also the president and CEO of New America, a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic platform dedicated to renewing America in an age of rapid change. From 2009 – 2011, she served as the first female director of policy planning for the U.S. Department of State, reporting directly to then Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. Her article "Why Women Still Can't Have It All" in the July/August 2012 issue of The Atlantic continues to spark widespread debate on work-life balance.
The Sept. 21 event hosted by the University of Virginia's Jefferson Scholars Foundation and the Shadwell Society. Free advance tickets are available via U.Va.'s Arts Box Office, with a limit of four tickets per person. Unclaimed tickets will be available at the door.
