Wellesley College this month will host several of the world’s most influential women in private events put together as part of the Madeleine Korbel Albright Institute for Global Affairs program. Although not open to the public, many of the events will be livestreamed.
Here are the luminaries with whom we will share our town’s very air and water, if only for a little while:
On January 8, from 10:45am – 12pm, Sally Yates, former U.S. Deputy Attorney General (2015-2017) will present a keynote talk, “Principles Not Policy: Essential Norms in Preserving the Rule of Law,” exploring the vital role of trust in creating stable and just societies. This event will be available via livestream.
On January 16, from 2pm – 3:30pm, a group of North Korea experts will present “Beyond the Headlines: Understanding Korea,” led by Katharine Moon, Edith Stix Wasserman Professor of Asian Studies at Wellesley. This event will be available via livestream.
On January 24 at 6:40pm, Secretary Albright will present a dinner dialogue entitled “In the Balance: Setting a Course to Restore Democratic Principles” with Wendy R. Sherman, senior counselor at Albright Stonebridge Group and former U.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs (2011 to 2015). This event will be available via livestream.
