Strategic Vision: The United States

About this webinar

In this session, Stan Grant will speak with Ambassador Samantha Power, Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, about the future of the United States, including what's at stake at the November elections and the future of the United States' role as a global leader. 

Samantha Power is the Anna Lindh Professor of the Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and the William D. Zabel Professor of Practice in Human Rights at Harvard Law School.

From 2013 to 2017, Power served in the Cabinet of President Barack Obama and as US Ambassador to the United Nations. From 2009 to 2013, Power worked on the National Security Council as Special Assistant to the President for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights.

Power’s book “A Problem from Hell”: America and the Age of Genocide won the Pulitzer Prize in 2003. She is also the author of the New York Times bestseller Chasing the Flame: One Man's Fight to Save the World.

Samantha Power’s book, The Education of an Idealist, is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestseller. In her memoir, Power offers an urgent response to the question “What can one person do?”— and a call for a clearer eye, a kinder heart, and a more open and civil hand in our politics and daily lives.

Humorous and deeply honest, The Education of an Idealist lays bare the searing battles and defining moments of her life and shows how she juggled the demands of a 24/7 national security job with the challenge of raising two young children. Power’s memoir is an unforgettable account of the power of idealism—and of one person’s fierce determination to make a difference.

More information on Samantha Power's memoir, 'The Education of an Idealist' is available here.
