“Throughout her remarkable career, and in her roles as mother, daughter, First Lady, senator and Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s steadfast focus on the political, economic and social empowerment of women has been an inspiration. Clinton is recognized as an incredibly resilient leader boosted by her remarkable dynamism and energy. She has cultivated a talent to stay positive and unwavering, with the ability to bounce back from hardship to be even stronger than she was before. On behalf of the Women’s Leadership Circle, I am thrilled to welcome Hillary Rodham Clinton to The Vancouver Board of Trade this spring.”

Hillary Rodham Clinton, former Secretary of State
Secretary Clinton served as the 67th U.S. Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, after nearly four decades in public service. Her “smart power” approach to foreign policy repositioned American diplomacy and development for the 21st century. Clinton played a central role in restoring America’s standing in the world, reasserting the United States as a Pacific power, imposing crippling sanctions on Iran and North Korea, responding to the Arab Awakening and negotiating a ceasefire in the Middle East. Earlier, as First Lady and Senator from New York, she traveled to more than 80 countries as a champion of human rights, democracy, and opportunities for women and girls. Clinton also worked to provide health care to millions of children, create jobs and opportunity, and support first responders who risked their lives at Ground Zero. In her historic campaign for President, Clinton won 18 million votes.
