Driving Change

Jun 28 2021 • 30 mins

Today, I'm talking with Jacqueline Novogratz, who is the founder and CEO of Acumen, a nonprofit investment fund that takes businesslike approaches to building a better world. Jacqueline is an extraordinary leader herself and has experienced some really demanding challenges throughout her career, including having launched a microfinance institution in Rwanda, where some of the leaders got caught up on both sides of the genocidal civil war. She is looked to by many of us for wise counsel and inspiration, as we think about how we contribute as leaders to solving some of the most intractable problems facing the world.

She's written a new book, “Manifesto for a Moral Revolution: Practices to Build a Better World", which I recommend to everybody. I'm going to be talking with her now about some of the key ideas in the book.
