Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat and Gail Evans

Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat currently heads the international practice of Covington and Burling LLP. His work at Covington focuses on resolving international trade problems and business disputes with the US and foreign governments, and international business transactions and regulations on behalf of US companies and others around the world.

During a decade and a half of public service in three US administrations, Ambassador Eizenstat held a number of key senior positions, including chief White House domestic policy adviser to President Jimmy Carter (1977-1981); U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, Under Secretary of State for Economic, Business and Agricultural Affairs and Deputy Secretary of the Treasury in the Clinton Administration (1993-2001).

Gail Evans began working at CNN at its inception in 1980. By the time she retired in 2001, she was Executive Vice President of the CNN Newsgroup. During that time, she was responsible for program and talent development at all of CNN’s domestic networks overseeing national and international talk shows.

Prior to working at CNN, Evans served on both House and Senate staffs and at the White House in the Office of the Special Counsel to the President during the Lyndon B. Johnson Administration. During her tenure at the White House, she was part of the team that created the 1965 Civil Rights Act and the President’s Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity.

Since her retirement, Evans has worked as an adjunct professor at Georgia Tech’s Scheller School of Management teaching gender, race and ethnicity in global organizations. She is the author of She Wins, You Win and Play Like a Man, Win Like a Woman, the latter of which became an international bestseller.
