- I have struggles and successes in common with hosts of people I'll never meet. I transform disappointments into energy rather than encountering them again and again as obstacles along the way. Maybe you'll recognize yourself ... and avoid some mistakes I've made. Better yet, I hope you'll savor more fully your own private and public triumphs. * transform disappointments into energy * learn from the mistakes of others * savor more fully your own private and public triumphs. Raised in Dallas, Swanee Hunt first made her mark as a civic leader and philanthropist in her adopted city of Denver, where she led community initiatives on social justice issues such as public education, affordable housing, women's empowerment, gay rights, and mental health reform for two mayors and the governor of Colorado. From 1993 to 1997, she served as President Clinton's ambassador to Austria, where she hosted negotiations and international symposia focused on stabilizing the neighboring Balkan states. For more than three decades, her foundation has advanced innovative and systemic approaches to social change at local, national, and global levels. Her work combating the demand for illegal purchased sex (including trafficking) and promoting the full inclusion of women leaders in international security processes spans more than sixty countries. Through Political Parity, she advocates for increasing the number of women in highest-level elected positions in the United States. At Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Swanee is the Eleanor Roosevelt Lecturer in Public Policy, founder of the Women and Public Policy Program, senior fellow at the Center for Public Leadership, and senior advisor at the Carr Center for Human Rights.
