Join an All-Ivy Conversation with (Ret.) General David Petraeus *87 and a Benefit for Ukraine.
If you're overwhelmed by the news and puzzled about how to help the country, you'll have answers on July 12. You'll join a conversation with a peerless military strategist and can engage with Razom (NGO) now working in Ukraine.
As you read this, Ukraine is a giant battle zone -- driving media attention as we watch daily videos of atrocities.
This pain-filled picture we address in our CONVERSATION with Keynote Speaker (Ret.) General David H. Petraeus *87. A 37-year U.S. Army officer and veteran, he led the Surge in Iraq and the US/Coalition forces in Afghanistan, serving next as the Director of the CIA. Earlier, he graduated with distinction from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and also earned his Ph.D. from Princeton University. He’ll assess the current state and the key steps to a future strategy in Ukraine. (His general staff peers have called him the "best soldier of his generation.") He now serves as a Partner with the global investment firm KKR and is Chairman of the KKR Global Institute. It's a conversation not to miss. (See more of his BIO below.)

BRIEF BIO: GENERAL DAVID H. PETRAEUS
General David Petraeus *87, US Army (Ret.), is a Partner with the global investment firm KKR and the Chairman of the KKR Global Institute, which he established in June 2013. He is also a personal venture capitalist and serves on the boards of KKR companies OneStream and Optiv. Before joining KKR, he served in government for 38-1/2 years, culminating his 37-year military career with six consecutive commands as a general officer, five of which were in combat – including the Surge in Iraq, US Central Command, and US/Coalition Forces in Afghanistan – and then serving as Director of the CIA, following Senate confirmation by a vote of 94-0. He graduated with distinction from the US Military Academy in 1974 and later earned a Ph.D. at Princeton University. He has held academic appointments at USMA, the City University of New York’s Macaulay Honors College, Harvard’s Belfer Center, and the University of Southern California. He is currently a Senior Fellow and Lecturer at Yale’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, Co-Chairman of the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Global Advisory Council, Senior Vice President of the Royal United Services Institute, and a member of the Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, and Aspen Strategy Group. His many awards include four Defense Distinguished Service Medals, the Secretary of State’s Distinguished Service Award, the Bronze Star Medal for Valor, two NATO Meritorious Service Medals, the Combat Action Badge, the Ranger tab, and master parachutist wings. He has also been decorated by 13 foreign countries and is believed to be the only person who, while in uniform, threw out the first pitch of a World Series game and did the coin toss for a Super Bowl. He was also runner-up for Time Person of the Year in 2007, when Russia’s President Vladimir Putin garnered that honor.
