CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cain is an honors graduate of Harvard Law School (1993) and the author of the NY Times bestseller, Quiet: the Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking (Broadway Books, Jan. 2013).
Martha Minow, Dean of HLS, said, in presenting the award to Cain on Friday, September 27, "you are an expert negotiator, bestselling author, introvert advocate, noted thought leader; your creativity, passion and achievements symbolize the best qualities of Harvard Law School and inspire our students and alumnae."
Susan Cain said, "What an honor to return to HLS to receive this award from Dean Minow, the ultimate 'quiet leader'! Before the ceremony, I had the great pleasure of interviewing Dean Minow, who told me that she leads with her true personality: a soft voice, a love of kindness, and a fondness for shades of gray. May many other leaders follow her path! I believe passionately that adjusting our professional and personal worlds to encourage introverts to shine is the next great diversity issue of our time."
