Anne-Marie Slaughter visited LSE and discussed the need to transform gender roles for men as much as women and to reinvent the workplace.
Anne-Marie Slaughter (@SlaughterAM), President and CEO of New America. She served as Director of Policy Planning for the U.S. State Department from January 2009 until February 2011 under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Anne-Marie Slaughter’s new book, Unfinished Business: Women, Men, Work, Family, argues that as long as work and family are considered women’s issues, women and men will never be equal and employers will continue to haemorrhage great female and increasingly male talent. To respond, we must go beyond change within our current structures. We must transform gender roles for men as much as for women, and reinvent the workplace to focus on results, customized careers, and on-demand provision of everything.
Peter Trubowitz (@ptrubowitz), Director of the US Centre and Head of the Department of International Relations at LSE.
