Unlimited Potential: Business Partners for Gender Equality

10 – 11 March 2015,  United Nations Headquarters,  New York City

The UN Global Compact and UN Women are pleased to announce Hillary Rodham Clinton, former Secretary of State of the United States, as the featured keynote speaker at the 2015 WEPs Event on 10 March. After nearly four decades of public service as First Lady, Senator, and U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton now helps lead the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Throughout her career, she has championed rights and opportunities for women and girls. She led the U.S. delegation to the Fourth UN World Conference on Women in 1995 in Beijing, where she delivered her historic speech and proclaimed “women’s rights are human rights”. In her keynote address, Secretary Clinton will reflect on progress made in implementing the agenda set in Beijing two decades ago. She will present key findings and recommendations from “No Ceilings: The Full Participation Report” and outline an agenda to accelerate the full participation of women and girls around the world.

Alan Gross was finally released from Cuban detention and a relaxation of U.S. – Cuban relations ensued.  This was something Hillary strongly advocated and actively sought for years as Secretary of State.

The Clinton clan was spotted out and about in New York City over the holidays, at one point taking little Charlotte out for a stroll.

For the 19th Time the Gallup poll named Hillary the ‘Most Admired Woman.’

Hillary ended the year on a playful note with an email that delivered a mischievous jab at those who have spent the year ceaselessly speculating about her 2016 intentions while ignoring her groundbreaking efforts at the Clinton Foundation.  The subject line of the email, “Announcement,”  sent a brief shock wave through the Hillary Clinton press corps and prompted a chuckle from those of us who love to watch Hillary play her pursuers.  Good one, Mme. Secretary!

Happy New Year to all!  There is still time to support Hillary’s work and for your contribution to be tripled!  Donate before midnight,  and then let’s all toast her efforts!

Happy New Year, Mme. Secretary, and thank you!
