Meet Madeleine K. Albright

Madeleine Albright, America’s first woman Secretary of State, draws on her extensive experience in public service and her ongoing work in the private sector to offer audiences a unique and up-to-the-minute perspective on the issues confronting the United States and the world.

Dr. Albright’s presentations are renowned for their powerful insights, fascinating stories and skillful analysis. Throughout her varied career, Albright has never been afraid to “tell it like it is.” In her remarks, which are sprinkled with lessons, anecdotes and humor, she is able to cover a wide range of topics tailored to the specific interests of her audience. She is equally at home discussing the linkage between the American economy and international security as she is analyzing the options faced by President Obama as he confronts the war in Afghanistan, the turmoil and unrest in North Africa and the Middle East, Iran’s nuclear ambitions and the rising influence of China. She also discusses her personal experiences while in government, the broader issues facing decision makers today, her current activities as a business executive, professor and leader of international initiatives related to the future of NATO and economic development in the Middle East. In addition to her service as Secretary of State, Albright served as America’s ambassador to the United Nations and was a member of the Cabinet and National Security Council and chaired NATO’s Strategic Concept Group which was tasked with laying the groundwork for the development of a new Strategic Concept for the Alliance for the next 10 years. She also teaches at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and is chair of the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs and the Partnership for a New Beginning in the Middle East. She is the author of five New York Times best sellers, Madam Secretary, The Mighty and the Almighty, Memo to the President and Read My Pins. In her most recent book, Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948 (April 2012), Albright recounts her own experiences during this time and those of her family. Drawing upon her memory, her parents’ written reflections, interviews with contemporaries and newly-available documents, Albright offers a moving account of this tumultuous period. On May 29, 2012, President Obama awarded Dr. Albright the U.S. Medal of Freedom—the nation's highest civilian honor.
