First-Ever IICF Event Adds Prominent Academic, Political Leader to Agenda

NEW YORK (February 6, 2013) -- The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) announced that Anne-Marie Slaughter, professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton University, will serve as keynote speaker for IICF's inaugural Women in Insurance Global Conference (WIGC) held June 12-14, 2013 in New York.

The first-of-its-kind event will explore topics ranging from changing mindsets that limit corporate diversity to remaining professionally relevant in the business environment.

Foreign Policy magazine named Slaughter to its annual list of "Top 100 Global Thinkers" for 2009-2012. She served as director of policy planning for the U.S. Department of State (the first woman to hold that position) from 2009-2011 and dean of Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs from 2002-2009. Slaughter has written or edited six books, including "A New World Order" and "The Idea That Is America: Keeping Faith with our Values In a Dangerous World," and more than 100 articles.

Slaughter bylined the controversial 2012 article "Why Women Still Can't Have It All" in The Atlantic magazine that reopened and widened discussion about work-life balance and outlined cultural and workplace changes needed to expand equal employment opportunity. Slaughter convened and co-chaired the Princeton Project on National Security, a multi-year research project aimed at developing a new, bipartisan national security strategy for the U.S. Slaughter is a board member of the New America Foundation and Abt Associates, member of the Aspen Strategy Group and consultant to Google, Inc.
