Hillary Rodham Clinton is coming to Code

Yes, that Hillary Clinton.

Here’s a speaker for Code 2017 you might have heard about.

Let’s not bury the lede: Hillary Rodham Clinton is coming to the 2017 Code conference and it is likely to be an epic interview.

Fake news? Check! Email problems? Check! FBI controversy? Check! Russian hackers? Check! The impact of tech on jobs? Check! The state of our very divided union? Double check!!

There’s no bigger story right now than our fractured political landscape, including for the tech and media sector. And there’s no better person to talk about that than someone who has spent 40 years in public service, including as First Lady, U.S. Senator, U.S. Secretary of State and the Democratic presidential candidate in 2016. She also writes books and is working on another right now, due out in September.

The first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party, the Chicago-born Clinton is well known as a longtime advocate on gender equality issues, including her famous declaration in Beijing in 1995: “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights.” So, we’ll talk about diversity too.

Like I said: Epic.

There are lots of other great speakers at the Code, as you can see here. And there are a few more to come. It all happens in about two weeks, so tune in for full coverage of the Clinton interview and more.
