From Wellesley College:
Several of the world’s most influential leaders in global economic policy will take part in a public dialogue, entitled “Addressing Global Inequality,” on January 31, at Wellesley College’s Madeleine Korbel Albright Institute for Global Affairs. The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF); Sri Mulyani Indrawati, managing director and chief operating officer of the World Bank; and Mark Malloch-Brown, former deputy secretary general and chief of staff for the United Nations. Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright ’59, a Wellesley alumna who founded the Institute, will also take part.
The public dialogue is the keynote event for “Impact Albright,” a weekend symposium that draws on scholars, policy makers and government officials to discuss global inequality in areas such as public health and hunger. Symposium panelists will include Ophelia Dahl ’94, co-founder and chair of the board for Partners In Health; Rajul Pandya-Lorch ’85, head of the 2020 Vision Initiative and chief of staff to the director general for the International Food Policy Research Institute; and Per Pinstrup-Andersen, the H. E. Babcock professor of food, nutrition and public policy and the J. Thomas Clark professor of entrepreneurship, and professor of applied economics at Cornell University.
The Public Dialogue begins at 2:30 PM on Jan. 31. Both the dialogue and the morning symposium panels are free and open to the public. For those that cannot attend, these events will be live-streamed on Wellesley’s website, and the Twitter hashtag #AlbrightDialogue will be used for social media posts related to the event, including live tweeting.
