For today’s successful women, it’s not just “business as usual” anymore. As the number of women in the U.S. workforce continues to increase, women who actively forge new paths while inspiring others are at the forefront of this paradigm shift. This woman leverages her position of influence to challenge those around her to burst through barriers and find creative ways of dealing with obstacles. She brings together key stakeholders, inspiring passion, conviction and confidence in others. This self-motivated trailblazer sees through the clutter and embraces a constantly evolving terrain, paving the way for others. She’s known for her abilities to lead, innovate, collaborate and advance. She is shifting the organization, and with it, business as we know it.
Womenetics will recognize nine outstanding women in the Chicago area. These women are nominated by corporate and community leaders for not only their leadership but what they do to contribute to community at-large.
At this inaugural Chicago awards event on March 7, 2013 from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm, Womenetics will recognize and celebrate women who have stirred the status quo and advanced their organizations, celebrating their excellence in leadership as a fresh standard for business and the community.
Anne-Marie Slaughter is the Bert G. Kerstetter ‘66 University Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University. From 2009 to 2011 she was the first woman to serve as director of policy planning for the United States Department of State. Her recent article in The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All,” draws from her experience as a working mother with a high-profile career and reignited the conversation about women’s work-life balance on a national level. Prior to her government service, Slaughter was the dean of Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs from 2002 to 2009, where she rebuilt the school’s international relations faculty and created a number of new centers and programs.
Slaughter is a frequent contributor to both mainstream and new media, publishing op-eds in major newspapers, magazines and blogs, and she appears regularly on CNN, the BBC, NPR and PBS. Foreign Policy magazine named Slaughter to their annual list of the Top 100 Global Thinkers in 2009, 2010 and 2011. She has served on boards of organizations ranging from the Council of Foreign Relations and the New America Foundation to the McDonald’s Corporation and the Citigroup.
