Samantha Power is the Professor of the Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and Professor of Practice in Human Rights at Harvard Law School. She served in the Cabinet of President Barack Obama and as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (2013-2017). From 2009 to 2013, Power worked on the National Security Council as Special Assistant to the President for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights. Power began her career as a journalist reporting from countries including Bosnia, East Timor, Rwanda, and Sudan. She is the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize, and she has been named by TIME as one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People and by Forbesas one of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women. In her memoir, The Education of an Idealist (Dey Street Books), Power offers an answer to the question “What can one person do?” while tracing a distinctly American journey from immigrant, to war correspondent, to presidential cabinet official. Secretary of State Madeline Albright said that Power’s “[…] absorbing, heartfelt, and remarkably candid memoir offers essential lessons to anyone aspiring to follow in her footsteps in shaping the world for the better.” Samantha Power will be in conversation with Ana Menendez.
