Great Leaders Award Honoring Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison

The Center for American and International Law is proud to present Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison with The Great Leaders Award.

This award, last presented in 1980, recognizes an American citizen whose inspiring leadership vision and judgment have contributed to the welfare of the world, our nation, and our community, and to the happiness and dignity of the individual in accord with the great traditions of the administration of justice under law.

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison

Former United States Senator, 1993-2013
Former United States Ambassador to NATO, 2017-2021

With decades of experience in the public and private sectors, Kay Bailey Hutchison is a public servant and businesswoman who has served in roles from bank executive to U.S. Senator to, most recently, U.S. Ambassador to NATO.

In January 2021, she stepped down from a more than 3-year term as U.S. Ambassador to The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Brussels, Belgium, where she managed the 250-person mission. In her service to NATO, she maintained U.S. leadership in the 30 Ally Alliance. She negotiated a rebalancing of contributions from allies, resulting in an annual savings of $140 million dollars for American taxpayers.

Before her public service as U.S. Ambassador, she was an attorney with Bracewell, a business and energy law firm headquartered in Houston, Texas. She also served as a Bank of America Global Advisory Board member and a contributor to the CNBC network.

She served as U.S. Senator from Texas from 1993 to 2013. During this time, she was elected by her peers to serve as Chairman of the Republican Policy Committee, the 4th highest-ranking Republican leadership position. 

Fireside Chat with Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson & Randy Ebner

Following the Great Leaders Award presentation, Randall Ebner, chair of CAIL's board of trustees, will join Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison for a fireside chat.

This conversation will highlight impactful moments from Senator Hutchison's career, her international experience, and her unique perspective on promoting the rule of law.
