« The world is rapidly transforming. Some of that change is disruptive, challenging us to find new ways of engaging our day to day lives, education, work, and careers. Some of that change provides amazing opportunities for making the world a better place for all of us. This series brings together leading voices on transformative change and asks them to address all of us: to teach us what they know, help us navigate the often confusing world around us, and guide us toward making the kinds of wise choices that can help us all move forward. »
