Smart Women, Smart Power: Integrating a "People-Centered" Approach in Foreign Policy

March 10, 2015 • 2:30 – 4:00 pm EDT

Featuring Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO, New America

New America President and CEO Anne-Marie Slaughter discusses what it means to elevate a people-centered focus on food, water, health, jobs, education, and human security alongside a state-centric focus on power, war, peace, and interstate cooperation on global issues. She tells moderator Nina Easton how can we treat both perspectives equally and integrate them into foreign policy that makes sense for the 21st century.

The Smart Women, Smart Power initiative features a speaker series and associated multimedia campaign designed to amplify the voices of women leaders in international business, foreign affairs, and security policy.

The series is made possible by the generous support of Citi.
