It's Your World: A Conversation with Nicholas Kristof

Nicholas Kristof

Even now, in the twenty-first century, intractable problems remain: poor early-childhood education, sex trafficking, inner-city violence, poverty and malnutrition, homelessness and many others. What can be done in the face of such enormous challenges? Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nicholas Kristof suggests that new, innovative approaches to philanthropy could offer answers, allowing individuals and organizations to make a difference in the world. At the end of the day what matters most is the impact on the ground.

Kristof has lived on four continents, reported on six and traveled to 150 countries, reporting on global health, poverty, education, gender inequality and much more. He will share stories of his experiences on the ground and discuss the art and science of giving, from his new book, "A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating opportunity," co-authored with Sheryl WuDunn.
