The Madeleine Korbel Albright ’59 Institute for Global Affairs marked its seventh anniversary with a reunion and symposium on global inequality in January. More than 72 percent of the seven cohorts of Albright Fellows return to campus from as far away as China and India. They were joined by Secretary Albright herself, as well as dignitaries such as Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund; Sri Mulyani Indrawati, managing director and COO of the World Bank; Mark Malloch-Brown, former deputy secretary general and chief of staff for the UN; and others. A group of alumnae Fellows, as well as President Emerita Diana Chapman Walsh ’66, gave “Maddy Talks,” modeled after TEDTalks, about their post-graduate lives and work—ranging from a physicist who recently interned at the White House Domestic Policy Council to a Watson Fellow who traveled the world studying how marginalized indigenous peoples struggle to sustain their homes.
