Condoleezza Rice Shares Key Lessons From a Lifetime of Leadership at GLS 2023

Rice concluded her interview by offering words of hope about the future, saying that she has never known a “more public-minded generation” than today’s young people. While they don’t always have good information and are fairly dependent on their smartphones, Rice believes that if older people are willing to mentor them, “they’re going to do remarkable things.”

And even though we are facing significant difficulties now in our world, “there have been harder times,” said Rice. For example, the U.S. was born in opposition to the toughest military power of its day. Or, she said, consider what her slave ancestors overcame. She sometimes wonders, “How did they survive it?” And yet they did. 

“Yes, it’s a tough time, but human beings are incredibly resilient,” said Rice. Others have met the challenges of their times, and “we will meet these too.”
