The Claims of Life: A Memoir by Diana Chapman Walsh
Diana Chapman Walsh,  (Wellesley Class of 1966) is President Emerita of Wellesley College and an emerita member of the governing boards of MIT and Amherst College. She was a trustee of the Kaiser Family Foundation, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and the Mind and Life Institute. She also chaired the Broad Institute’s inaugural board and co-founded the Council on the Uncertain Human Future. She is the author, co-author, and editor of numerous books, including Corporate Physicians: Between Medicine and Management. 
Claims of Life offers readers an unusually intimate view of trustworthy leadership that begins and ends in self-knowledge. During a transformative fourteen-year Wellesley presidency, Walsh advanced women's authority, compassionate governance, and self-reinvention. After Wellesley, Walsh's interests took her to the boards of five national nonprofits galvanizing change. She kept counsel with Nobel laureates, feminist icons, and even the Dalai Lama, seeking solutions to the world's climate crisis.
