Making History: Kamala HARRIS, America’s First Female Vice President – and President?
Born to immigrant parents from Jamaica and India, Kamala HARRIS grew up in the African American community in Berkeley, California. From there, she started an unlikely journey to become a female, black prosecutor – and then shattered one glass ceiling after another: first female and Black District Attorney of San Francisco, Attorney General of California, Senator, now Vice President. What would it mean for domestic and geopolitics and businesses if Kamala HARRIS took over as US-President during the first Biden administration or in 2024?

stars Alumna Marie-Astrid LANGER is the California based correspondent for Neue Zuercher Zeitung, has covered Harris’ rise in the past years and recently published the book “Kamala Harris – Ein Porträt” (Suhrkamp Verlag). In our stars Webinar, she will talk about where Harris came from, what forces shaped her – and where she is headed next.
