The Moral Imperative to Act: A Conversation with McNulty Prize Laureates

Today’s structural problems — globalization, displacement, automation — are compounded by social strains — extremism, protectionism, disinformation. New leaders must defend ethics, prove that change and consensus is possible, and pioneer more equitable futures. Meet individuals who have brought their skills and spirit to bear on critical problems that others have failed to solve, or even attempt. How can you bring transparency to a corrupt media and government? How can gangs be convinced to demobilize and embrace honest employment? How do youth who have been failed by education get the skills they need for careers that will lift them and their country? Hear their stories as they host a dialogue on the moral imperative to lead with conscience.
