Former U.S. Secretary of State and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will receive the inaugural Forbes International Women’s Day Lifetime Achievement Award next month.
The honor is being granted, according to Forbes, for “her leadership and influential voice on the global stage in advancing the cause of women and fighting for gender equity.”
“I am thrilled to announce former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will headline the next month’s 30/50 summit in Abu Dhabi,” Mika Brzezinski said on Morning Joe to announce the Clinton bestowal.
Brzezinski is a chairwoman of the summit and founder of the co-sponsoring organization, Know Your Value
“Hillary Clinton helped shape and define an era in which women rose in protest, changed the conversation, and ultimately came to power,” she told the Morning Joe audience.
“There is no one more fitting than Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton to receive the Forbes International Women’s Day Lifetime Achievement Award,” added chief content officer and Forbes editor Randall Lane.
