In a World of Inequalities, Does Democracy Matter?

March 27, 2024 • 10:00 – 10:30 am EDT

On this episode of Smart Women, Smart Power, Dr. Helene Gayle, President of Spelman College and CSIS Trustee, joins Dr. Kathleen McInnis for a discussion on her approach to leadership after years in government, the nonprofit space, and the private sector, including CARE, the CDC, and USAID. Dr. Gayle is no stranger to leading during a crisis, and at the heart of her decisions is the notion that people are policy.

Additionally, she discussed her decision to brand the international humanitarian organization CARE as an organization focused on women’s empowerment. 

This episode is made possible through general support to Smart Women, Smart Power.
