Princeton Prof. Anne-Marie Slaughter to Speak as Part of Panel on Work-Life Balance

Event part of 40th anniversary celebration at College
January 28th, 2013 by 

The economics department at the College of the Holy Cross will host a panel discussion on evaluating women’s progress and work/life balance on Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Rehm Library. Featured panelist Anne-Marie Slaughter, the Bert G. Kerstetter ’66 University Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University, will give a talk titled “Measuring Success: Women, Work and Family in the 21st Century.”  Other panelists include Sheila Cavanaugh ’81, consultant and former senior vice president of Fidelity Investments, the largest mutual fund company in the United States; and Megan Fox-Kelly ’99, assistant chaplain and director of retreats at Holy Cross.  The panel, which will address questions of success, responsibility, and choice, is free and open to the public.

From 2009–2011, Slaughter served as director of policy planning for the United States Department of State, the first woman to hold that position. Upon leaving the State Department she received the Secretary’s Distinguished Service Award for her work leading the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review, as well as a Meritorious Honor Award from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Slaughter has served as the dean of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, where she rebuilt the school’s international relations faculty, and as the convener and academic co-chair of the Princeton Project on National Security, a multi-year research project aimed at developing a new, bipartisan national security strategy for the United States.

Slaughter is a frequent contributor to both mainstream and new media, publishing op-eds in major newspapers, magazines and blogs around the world and curating foreign policy news for over 40,000 followers on Twitter. Appearing regularly on CNN, BBC, NPR and PBS, she is the author of the controversial Atlantic article “Why Women Can’t Have It All.” Slaughter has written or edited six books, including “A New World Order” (Princeton University Press, 2004) and “The Idea that Is America: Keeping Faith with Our Values in a Dangerous World” (Basic Books, 2007).

Cavanaugh received her B.A. from Holy Cross in 1981 and her M.B.A. from the Yale School of Management. She led Fidelity Investments’ community relations and internal communications departments; as senior vice president, she launched Fidelity’s first strategic, large-scale employee engagement effort across the U.S.

Fox-Kelly received her B.A. from Holy Cross in 1999 and her M.Div. from the Weston Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge, Mass. Since 2005, she has served as an associate chaplain at the College, where she oversees and directs the Escape retreat for first-year students. She lives as a chaplain-in-residence in Mulledy Hall with her husband and three children.

Holy Cross is celebrating the 40th anniversary of coeducation with a series of events throughout the 2012-13 academic year. Students, faculty, and staff will have extensive opportunities during the year to reflect on, acknowledge, and commemorate the moment in 1972 when the College opened its doors to women students for the first time.
