On Wednesday, February 5, students in Classes VI–XII attended a special afternoon assembly with former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Rather than delivering a lecture, Secretary Albright chose to run the assembly as a Q&A session, taking questions first from a panel of students who shared the stage with her and then moving on to a half-hour of questions from the audience. The girls prepared for the visit by learning about Secretary Albright's life and career, and their questions reflected a profound interest in her experiences both as a global leader and as a woman. With candor and good humor, Secretary Albright shared her insights with the girls on a wide range of topics, from stories relating to her interactions with world leaders to the specific benefits of having women in positions of leadership.
