The Coming Work/Family Revolution
In this engaging presentation, speaker Anne-Marie Slaughter discusses the many responses to her world-famous Atlantic Monthly article, "Why Women Still Can't Have It All": the positive, the negative, and the unexpected. She discusses the underlying issues that are driving the "having it all" debate, the many solutions that are already on the horizon, and the steps we all need to take to bring about what will be a revolution not only with regard to the future of work and family, but the future of work itself. This presentation offers an uplifting message on how drastic improvements for both sexes in the workforce are within our grasp.
The Big Picture: Beyond Hot Spots & Crises in Our Interconnected World
It's not just our perception; it's really true: the world of foreign policy today is much more complicated and harder to prioritize than it was in the Cold War. If we define "problems we must pay attention to" by the criterion "things that can kill or seriously alter the quality of life for millions of Americans," we still come up with a list of seven to eight issues, from the proliferation of nuclear weapons to the spread of violent extremism to conflict in the Middle East to global pandemics and climate change. Underlying this complexity is the addition of hundreds of thousands if not millions of actors to the global stage – "non-state actors" ranging from terrorist and global criminal networks to foundations, corporations, and NGOs. Those different social actors now intersect with the different agencies and parts of over 150 governments in regions around the world. In this networked world, we need to construct counter-networks that can respond and adapt within complex systems. The good news is that this is a foreign policy with a role for many more players than during the Cold War; this talk not only describes and analyzes that world, but explains how different corporations, foundations, universities, civic groups, and the like can play their part.
