Madeleine Albright on her path to the White House and the current state of women leaders

September 26, 2011

As we gear up for our Women in Leadership Institute, we plan to recognize several strong leaders across the globe who have paved the way for today’s women leaders.

Between 1997 and 2001, Madeleine K. Albright served as the 64th Secretary of State of the United States and the first female to ever hold the job in U.S. government history. During her tenure, America led its successful campaign to reverse ethnic cleansing in Kosovo.

The Former U.S. Secretary of State sat down with The Wall Street Journal’s Kelsey Hubbard to discuss her path to the White House and the current state of women leaders.  Watch their interview:
