Hillary Clinton will join Meryl Streep, Oprah, Diane von Furstenberg and Tom Hanks in New York next month in one of her first public appearances as a highly-paid public speaker since leaving the Obama administration.

Clinton will be one of the featured speakers at Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s Women in the World Summit in New York, The Daily Beast announced Thursday.

After leaving the State Department, she joined the Harry Walker Agency, the same agency that handles the speaking engagements of other former government officials like former Vice Presidents Al Gore and Dick Chenet, and her husband, former president Bill Clinton.

The summit highlights global women’s issues and features activists, CEOs and artists.

“We tell the stories of the courageous and intelligent women who are battling the status quo in their countries, picking up the pieces in the aftermath of war and shattering glass ceilings in every sector,” The Daily Beast announced.
