Multiplying Good joins the nation in mourning the loss of Former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright.  As the world remembers her as a trailblazer, we remember her as a friend, Jefferson Award recipient, and member of the Multiplying Good community.  

Secretary Albright was awarded the U.S. Senator John Heinz Award for Outstanding Public Service by an Elected or Appointed Official in 2001 for her lifetime service to the nation.

Appointed as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations by President Clinton in 1993, she served in that position until 1996. During that same year, President Clinton went on to nominate Albright for the position of the United States Secretary of State. After her confirmation by the United State Senate, she became the 64th Secretary of State and first female to serve in this role. At the time of her appointment, she became the highest-ranking women in the history of the U.S. government.

She created institutions and policies that led the world into a new era of peace by using a bipartisan approach to foreign policy and is a defender of democracy and freedom across the globe. She also promoted the expansion of NATO eastward into the former Soviet bloc nations and the continued to support the expansion of a free-market democratization and the creation of the civil societies in the developing world. She served in the role until 2001.
