Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, a renowned journalistic team, have traveled the world and lived for many years in Asia, where their work won them the first Pulitzer Prize granted to a husband and wife. In this fireside chat, Nick and Sheryl will consider the political dimension of COVID-19, including the rise of nationalism and concerns that the ongoing pandemic could further enable opportunistic leaders, in the context of their abiding concern for those less fortunate around the world. Nick and Sheryl never miss the bright hopes of people and examples of exceptional goodness demonstrated in the most troublesome times--including those we’re living through right now.
Their passion has led Nick and Sheryl to important roles in the nonprofit and business worlds, and as joint authors of an exceptional series of books. Their most recent, Tightrope, goes deeply into the personal challenges of the people who rode the bus with Nick as children in rural Oregon, proposing actionable solutions to the problems of those on lower rungs of society.
