We are thrilled to announce that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be our featured speaker for an intimate conversation moderated by Christiane Amanpour, Chief International Correspondent, CNN.

Secretary Clinton has said in the past and still believes that the only way to reduce the number of conflicts around the world, to eliminate rape as a weapon of war, to combat sexual violence, and to build sustainable peace is to draw on the full contributions of women. In her work as First Lady, as a U.S. Senator, as Secretary of State, and as the first female candidate nominated for President of the United States by a major party, Secretary Clinton has led the fight to prevent and respond to gender-based violence, to end child and forced marriage, and to usher in the voices of women in every aspect of peacebuilding and conflict resolution. In her long and illustrious career, her championing the causes of women and girls has changed policy and saved lives. And as we all know, there is still so much to do. In this intimate conversation, we will hear her vision of women’s roles in the peace and security space in the years to come.
