Get Inspired! Series #2: Madeleine Albright TED Talk

I promise every post won’t exclusively feature content from TED, but they do offer so many great presentations it’s hard to resist! The former Secretary Of State speaks on the importance of women having educational and economic opportunities for a sustainable society.
