Anne-Marie Slaughter, the Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor of Politics and International Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School, will discuss “Beyond Work/Life: Changing the Debate and Making Change” at a public lecture at the Woodrow Wilson School. A public reception will follow the discussion in Shultz dining room.
Slaughter is the author of the extensively read July/August 2012 cover story in The Atlantic Magazine, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All.” The article went viral with more than 1 million people clicking on the online version of the story in less than a week. It also generated an extensive amount of social media traffic on Facebook and Twitter, as well as a worldwide discussion on women in the workplace and the competing demands of home life.
Slaughter was recently presented with two awards that recognized her contributions to women in the work force as a result of the article: The “Work Life Legacy Award” by the Families and Work Institute – a nonprofit center dedicated to providing research for living in today’s changing workplace, changing family and changing community. The “Work Life Legacy Award” captures the stories of those exemplary individuals who have created and advanced the work life movement. Slaughter was also presented with a “Leadership Award” from the WIE Network as part of its annual WIE Symposium. WIE provides a platform for this generation’s women leaders to inspire and empower the next. The event brings together leaders from the worlds of politics, business, fashion, philanthropy, media, entertainment and the arts, in a day of panels, workshops, master-classes and the awards ceremony.
