Leadership Lecture Series welcomes Madeleine Albright

Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright spoke to another capacity crowd at Dominican's Angelico Hall on February 21 as part of the University’s 2013 Institute for Leadership Studies (ILS) Spring Leadership Lecture Series. The series is offered in partnership with Bay Area independent bookstore Book Passage.

Albright was joined in conversation with Book Passage president Elaine Petrocelli.

Since Albright left office after serving as the 64th Secretary of State of the United States, she has authored three New York Times bestsellers. Her autobiography, Madam Secretary: A Memoir, was published in 2003. A second book, The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs, entered bookstores in 2006. Memo to the President: How We Can Restore America's Reputation and Leadership was published in 2008.

Currently, Albright serves as a Chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategy firm, and Chair and Principal of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory group.

The Leadership Lecture Series is a cooperative effort between Dominican’s Institute for Leadership Studies and Book Passage. Each year, the Leadership Lecture Series features some of the country's leading figures from the world of business, politics, entertainment, academia, and literature. It has entertained and educated thousands of Marin County and San Francisco Bay Area residents. All lectures are open to the public.

The ILS Spring 2013 Leadership Lecture Series is sponsored by Private Ocean, the Marin-based wealth management company. For more information, visit www.dominican.edu/LLS or email [email protected]
