Earlier this month, we hosted a very special evening honoring the work of former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and her three daughters – Katie, Anne, and Alice. Each has devoted her life to service in a uniquely meaningful way, and their closeness is evident throughout the program. Jane Wales, our President and CEO, engaged the Albrights on how the ideals of community and service are shared across generations.

Madeleine learned early in life that personal integrity stems from an unwavering commitment to values. Growing up during the war in Czechoslovakia she learned from her father, a Czech diplomat, the importance of knowledge and service. Madeleine later shaped her own career of social impact in a time when gender was often an obstacle. Together, the women of the Albright family offer a powerful, living example of the idea that each of us should strive not just to maintain our place in the world, but to improve the world through our personal and professional contributions.

It was a truly inspirational evening, and we are grateful to the Albright women for sharing their stories. Watch highlights from the program below, and listen to the full audio program here.
