“High Point University Presents: A Conversation with Condoleezza Rice and Nido R. Qubein” Tonight
The UNC-TV network will broadcast “High Point University Presents: A Conversation with Condoleezza Rice and Nido R. Qubein” tonight (Thursday, Nov. 10) at 10 p.m. EST.
As a child who grew up in segregated Birmingham, Alabama, Rice went on to become a Soviet specialist, the first African-American provost at Stanford University, and the first African-American female Secretary of State. Her secret? Hard work, and, as she shared with students, the determination to never allow anyone else to decide your own outcome.
As Secretary of State, Rice championed the idea of “Transformational Diplomacy,” which expanded the number of diplomatic governments throughout the world. Rice has appeared four times on Time Magazine’s list of the world’s 100 Most Influential People. She currently serves as a professor at Stanford University and was HPU’s 2016 Commencement Speaker.
This is the latest UNC-TV installment on HPU’s “Access to Innovators” speaker series. Past specials have included discussions with Dr. Carol Folt, UNC-Chapel Hill chancellor; Tom Brokaw, distinguished journalist and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient; General Colin Powell, Former Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder; John Maxwell, bestselling author and internationally renowned leadership expert; Malcolm Gladwell, bestselling author and one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People; Seth Godin, bestselling author, marketing pioneer and founder of Yoyodyne and Squidoo; Ken Dychtwald, founding president and CEO of Age Wave; and HPU’s entrepreneurship roundtable discussion with business leaders such as Gov. Pat McCrory and racing CEO Richard Childress.
