Over her 20 years of experience, she has directed several multidisciplinary research programs for both government and private-sector clients. Her primary focus has been on military infectious disease research, biological terrorism preparedness, emerging science and technology, disease surveillance, trusted networks, and terrorist financing. She spent 12 years as the senior analyst for the US Department of Defense’s influential Highlands Forum. Ledgerwood received her B.A. in history from Stanford University and her M.P.P from the Harvard Kennedy School. She speaks six languages with varying degrees of proficiency.
Topic: Seven Revolutions: Global Trends and the Role of Women in 2035 “Seven Revolutions is an ambitious effort to look at the pressing global trends that will fundamentally change the way we work, think, and live – as individuals, as organizations, as nations, and as women in leadership positions. The Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), a Washington-based, bipartisan foreign policy think tank, has spent more than two decades analyzing these trends. Looking out to the year 2035, they have identified a series of important drivers both globally and locally, as well as their projected effects on societies worldwide. These drivers are population; resource management; technological innovation; information flows; economic integration; security; and governance. Michèle Ledgerwood will speak to us about emerging challenges in all of these areas and their likely evolution over the next 25 years, as well as how they will be influenced by – and have an impact on – women across the globe.”
