Annual President’s Leadership Dialogue to feature Anne-Marie Slaughter Jan. 29

Anne-Marie Slaughter, a Princeton University professor and president and CEO of the New America Foundation, will be the guest speaker for the university’s annual President’s Leadership Dialogue Thursday, Jan. 29.

Slaughter was vaulted into the national spotlight for her article titled, “Why women still can’t have it all,” which appeared in 2012 in The Atlantic. It remains one of the magazine’s most read and shared articles to date. 

The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place 7 – 8:30 p.m. in the W.W. Hootie Johnson Performance Hall at the Darla Moore School of Business. It will feature a 30-minute talk by Slaughter titled, “Leading from the Center,” and a conversation on leadership with university President Harris Pastides followed by audience questions. Slaughter was the director of policy planning for the U.S. State Department and the dean of Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

Slaughter received her doctorate in international relations from Oxford and her law degree from Harvard, and she has taught at the University of Chicago and Harvard Law School.
