Casey Gerald, author of “There Will Be No Miracles Here,” was the poster child for the American Dream, escaping a harrowing childhood to enter a new world of elite universities and secret societies. But as he climbed the social ladder, he saw how this hierarchical divide stifled those at the margins. He came to understand that “salvation stories” like his could be used to keep others from rising.

In this interview with AFP President and CEO Jim Kaitz, Gerald turns the American Dream narrative on its head, explaining how to keep a positive, but realistic mindset when faced with adversity, while challenging our preconceived notions of success. At AFP 2019, he will elaborate on these ideas even further in a special presentation.

Anne-Marie Slaughter is the CEO of New America, a public policy institute and idea incubator whose mission is to realize America’s highest ideals by confronting the challenges posed by technological and social change. Together with her team of scientists, technologists and political and economic thinkers, Slaughter works to generate big ideas as templates for change.

Slaughter, who was named one of Foreign Policy’s Top 100 Global Thinkers from 2009 to 2012, is also a celebrated author and editor. In her latest book "The Chessboard and the Web: Strategies of Connection in a Networked World," she uses network science to develop a new way of thinking about strategy in business and politics in the current era of rapid change and disruption.

She was the first woman to serve as the Director of Policy Planning, a title she held from 2009 to 2011, under U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama. Also professor and a lawyer, Slaughter is the Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University and was the Dean of Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs from 2002 to 2009.

This fall, Slaughter will be a spotlight speaker at AFP 2019 in Boston, in which she will speak on the future of work. She’ll examine how work is changing, and how everyone, regardless of age or tenure, has to continue to learn and develop new skills.
