U.S. Department of State

Global hotspots and blind spots

Dr. Anne-Marie Slaughter is known as someone who has helped shatter many glass ceilings, those barriers to advancement in a profession, especially those affecting women.

She served as director of Policy Planning for the U.S. Department of State, the first woman to hold that position. Prior to her government service, she was the dean of Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. She was also a professor of international, foreign and comparative law at Harvard Law School.

Slaughter now serves as president and CEO of New America, a think and action tank dedicated to renewing America in the digital age.
