Princeton University President Shirley M. Tilghman and Anne-Marie Slaughter '80, the Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor of Politics and International Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School, will share the stage for a wide-ranging conversation on women and leadership in today's society. Sparked by Slaughter's controversial cover story "Why Women Still Can't Have it All" in the July/August 2012 issue of The Atlantic Monthly, the conversation will build upon the topic of work-life balance. Carrying forward the spirit of She Roars: Celebrating Women at Princeton, alumni are invited back to campus to continue the discussions on women and leadership that were woven throughout the conference that was held in 2011. This event will further distinguish Princeton University as an institution willing to explore the importance of diversity in leadership through open dialogue.

Immediately following the conversation, there will be a networking reception for alumni and students hosted in Chancellor Green Rotunda. At this time, spaces at the reception are no longer available. This reception will provide an opportunity for alumni and students alike to interact one-on-one in a personal setting and continue the conversation. Tables with alumni hosts will be arranged by industry and will provide students with a chance to develop a greater understanding of the broad range of opportunities and career paths available to them, as well as hear personal stories from alumni about their own career choices. PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in attending this reception, you will be asked to complete an additional online form to provide some background information about your current and former employment as well as provide a brief bio on your career background.
