Madeleine Albright recently remarked that women are the growing force for progress in the 21st century.

Yet the opportunities are not endless. In an effort to better understand how women can take the next step in their own lives – and further shape the world around them – Ambassador Melanne Verveer and Kim Azzarelli have led an expansive conversation with fifty of the world’s most groundbreaking women. Join The Chicago Council’s Women and Global Development Forum for a discussion on what they learned and what women's progress means for the world.
Their latest book, Fast Forward: How Women Can Achieve Power and Purpose, will be available for purchase and signing from The Book Cellar following the program.
